Parking enforcement has started up again in Ridgefield. When the pandemic restrictions started in March of 2020, Ridgefield stopped all downtown parking enforcement. Now that most stores have reopened, people have returned to their office and restaurants are serving customers in person, the lack of parking is once again a problem downtown. The town's retail, restaurant and service businesses are calling for convenient parking for their customers. Without enforcement, the town says many employees are again parking all day in the downtown lots, taking up spaces that are needed for customers. Tickets will be issued for parking in excess of posted time limits and other violations. There is an all-day parking lot on Governor Street. Those with permits are reminded to park in the area assigned to their permit. New 6-month permits will be available in June for the July through December period.
