Street Cleaning Suspended on Monday; Resumes Tuesday

Due to the forecast for snow, street cleaning enforcement will be suspended on Monday, March 3rd and is scheduled to resume on Tuesday, March 4th.

Property owners/occupants are reminded that they have six hours after the completion of a storm to remove snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to their property (to a width of 4 feet or 2/3 width of sidewalk, whichever is greater), along with adjoining wheelchair ramps, curb cuts, and gutters (2 feet into the street). The City will continue to enforce these regulations and issue fines for failure to comply. Residents are urged to assist elderly or disabled neighbors with clearing snow from their properties and are asked to “adopt” a fire hydrant on their street and keep it clean and clear of snow. It is illegal to shovel snow back onto streets or onto fire hydrants. The City is responsible for clearing sidewalks around City-owned properties.

Hoboken, Jersey City & Weehawken To Launch Regional Bike Share System

800 Smart Bikes Will Form Largest Next-Generation Bike Share System in North America

The cities of Hoboken, Jersey City and Weehawken are partnering to launch a regional bike share system in the summer of 2014 that will be the largest next-generation bike share system in North America. The system will feature 800 smart-bikes, 50 bike stations, and 2 full-service pavilions at no cost to the cities.

“Bike sharing is an affordable, sustainable, and convenient transportation option,” said Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “We are excited to partner with leading innovators to bring this next-generation system to our residents, businesses and visitors at no cost to taxpayers. I am proud to build upon our successful pilot bike share program and work with our neighbors in Jersey City and Weehawken to create a regional system.”

Street Cleaning Enforcement Suspended

Street cleaning enforcement is suspended until further notice. Unfortunately, because many vehicles remain parked during street cleaning hours, there is insufficient space on most streets to maneuver the payloader needed to clear ice from parking lanes. While the City is not issuing tickets for street cleaning, a payloader and Bobcat are being used to clear open parking spaces, catch basins, and corners where possible in anticipation of a storm forecast for later this week.

Parking Permitted on Snow Routes; Meters Suspended Through Monday; Street Cleaning Resumes Tuesday

Parking is again permitted on all snow emergency routes including 3rd St, 4th St, 5th St, 9th St, 13th St, Willow Ave, and Washington St. Parking meters are suspended city-wide until the end of Monday, February 17.

The City is bringing in extra seasonal employees today to clear corners of snow and slush. Residents and property owners are asked to help with keeping gutters clear so that melting snow can properly drain at corners.

City offices will be closed on Monday for the Presidents Day holiday. Street cleaning enforcement will resume on Tuesday, February 18 in order to clear snow from parking lanes.
