Residential Parking Permit Renewal Process

Councilman Peter Cunningham announces:

Happy spring and happy holidays to all.

This weekend's local paper had a public service announcement for parking permit renewals for Hoboken residents.  Many of you may not be aware that renewals are on a rolling basis, not within the first quarter of the year as it had been for as long as we can remember.

April 2013 permits are to be renewed at this time.  To check on when your permit renewal is due, please login to www.hobokennj.org/hpuonline.  This is a GovOnline System where you login to create an account, view your updated contact info, or renew your permit.  You can also call 201-653-1919 to check on your renewal during the hours of M-F, 8:15am to 9:30pm; Sat from 9-1pm.  If you are not signed up to receive your renewal via email, you should receive a letter.  I advise that if you haven't renewed in over a year to do so as soon as possible.

As the new Chair of the Transportation and Parking Committee of the City Council, is our job to improve the policies of the Utility to create more parking for our residents with out jeopardizing pedestrian safety, and study traffic patterns to reduce congestion and improve traffic flows.  Obviously these are two lofty challenges.  There are many other initiatives being undertaken to assist in this endeavour, such as a Parking Master Plan.  

I am always open to hear suggestions, and questions and concerns.  Please pass this note along to your neighbors, and look forward to speaking with you soon.  Thanks, 

Peter Cunningham
