Pay-By-Plate Parking

Parking meters on Chatham Road, Millburn Ave and in Lots #1, 2, 4, 5 and 9 have been replaced with MPay2Park Pay Stations. The pay stations are pay-by-plate and accommodate hourly parking ($.25 per 30 min) and all day parking ($10). Be sure to park in properly designated spots for hourly or all day parking. Your receipt from the pay station does not need to be displayed.

Parking may also be paid for on smart phones by downloading the mPay2Park mobile app in the App Store and GooglePlay. Your parking zone will automatically populate per your GPS location. 

With this parking system, spot numbers are not necessary; only license plate numbers need to be entered when paying for parking. Time limits still apply to all parking!
