Free parking ends in New London as enforcement resumes
New London — The free parking available across the city over the last several months is ending.
The New London Parking Authority on Wednesday announced in a statement that it gradually will resume parking enforcement, “an important measure to provide equitable access to convenient parking.”
The announcement comes as the state continues its process of reopening and follows the opening of some of the city’s public offices to staff members who are returning to work.
Warnings for some parking-related violations which had ceased in recent months in order to provide free parking for residents and visitors will start again on July 20. Parking enforcement and associated fines for safety-related, metered and residential parking violations will resume on Aug. 3
Motorists are welcome to visit the Office of Parking Management in the Water Street garage to pay citations and renew residential parking permits. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. All visitors to the office are asked to wear masks and adhere to social distancing standards. One individual will be allowed in the office at a time. Floor markings and social distancing-awareness signs have been placed at 6-foot intervals throughout the office. Hand sanitizing products also will be provided at each station.
