In addition to these road closures, all parking meters on West Bridge Street, and all parking meters on South Main Street will be bagged “No Parking” starting at approximately 11 p.m. on Friday, June 20, 2014. Any vehicle which remains in a bagged parking space as of 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 21, 2014 will be removed by police at the owner’s expense.

Metered parking regulations will be suspended on June 21, 2014 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Any person whose residential parking space falls within the restricted areas may, therefore, park in any non-restricted metered space within the Borough, without charge, during that time. After 1 p.m., enforcement of all parking regulations will resume. Informational signs and detour arrows will be placed at locations throughout the Borough to assist motorists in avoiding the parade route.

Persons who will be affected by these road closures and/or parking restrictions should take appropriate action prior to the start of the parade. Once the parade begins, police cannot guarantee that persons will be able to arrive at or depart from the affected areas.

Any questions regarding these measures should be directed to New Hope Police at (215) 862-3033.
