There are some changes being made to parking restrictions in New Milford. The Traffic Authority has changed the three hour parking limitation in the downtown area. It's now effective from 8am to 8pm daily.
Mayor David Gronbach says that means any driver who parks at 5pm or later will not be subject to three hour parking as the three hours will expire after the end of the enforcement period. Gronbach says the change was made in response to complains about people wanting to go to dinner and a movie, but having to move their car in between.
He says this should help retain turn over of spots during daytime hours and will enable residents to spend more time downtown in the evening. This rule change only applies to areas that did not already have other restrictions in place.
