Highlands Residential Parking Pilot Program for Overnight Visitors
During large events in the past, the Borough has lifted the overnight restrictions in the entire Borough because the volume of permissions is too high for staff to process. This will change for the Highlands neighborhood for the duration of the pilot program, but areas outside the Highlands in the Borough will still have the overnight restrictions lifted. Residents of the Highlands that have registered for the guest permits will be eligible to purchase overnight parking permits for their guests at a cost of $10 per 24 hour period. Vehicles must be parked on streets signed for the permits within the boundaries of the Pilot Program.
