Parking in a city can be a daunting task — especially when there are tons of rules and regulations. For that reason, we researched the resident and visitor parking rules, who to contact if you receive a ticket, where to park in the snow, and more. Plus, there’s a new parking deck that just opened in Montclair, so we’re rounding up where parking decks are available locally. Read on for a guide to all things parking in Montclair + for more information about the new deck.
About the New Deck
As of November 10th, the new Midtown Parking Deck is officially open to residents and visitors of Montclair. It is located at Glenridge Avenue and North Willow Street in Montclair. As a part of the soft opening — which is happening now through 8AM on Monday, November 14th — parking will be free for all patrons courtesy of the township Parking Utility. The deck has more than 300 parking spaces, including 10 handicapped spots, and 75 spots will go to employees of local businesses, per Baristanet.
