  MANCHESTER – Manchester Township officials approved changes to the township’s parking ordinance at a recent council meeting, which prohibits parking at any time on various roadways.

  According to the ordinance, the parking regulations are meant to ensure “the health, safety, and welfare of residents of the Township, and specifically to promote neighborhood aesthetics and the safer flow of vehicles onto roadways and across sidewalks, curbs and road shoulders.”

  The changes include 24-hour parking bans on both sides of the following streets, between the designated limitations:

  • Colonial Drive: Parking prohibited any time between Route 37 and Route 70
  • Morningside Street: Parking prohibited any time between Eighth and Tenth Avenues
  • Tenth Avenue: Parking prohibited any time on Tenth Avenue for 200 ft. south of County Route 571
  • Teresa Way: Parking prohibited any time for the entire length of the street
  • Wranglebrook Road: Parking prohibited any time 50 ft. north and 50 ft. south from its intersections. Parking prohibited on the remainder of the street from 9 p.m.-6 a.m.
  • Schoolhouse Road: Parking prohibited any time 50 ft. north and 50 ft. south from its intersections. Parking prohibited on the remainder of the street from 9 p.m.-6 a.m.
  • Lake Road: Parking prohibited any time for the entire length of the street
  • Station Road: Parking prohibited any time for the entire length of the street

  In addition, the township has struck regulations from the ordinance dictating parking being prohibited during certain hours on certain streets, in favor of a more comprehensive parking rule.
