Update on New Project…
With recent delays in construction now overcome, the new parking lot – more accurately an extension of the Vaughn lot with additional access from Alexander Road – is now slated for completion by the end of June.
Additional details will soon be provided via e-mail to everyone on the wait list. The process will start with permit offers to West Windsor residents. Then an allocation of parking will be set aside for daily paid parking before permit offers will be made to non-residents.
We will provide further updates as they develop.
Important Notice For Permit Holders
West Windsor now uses License Plate Recognition ("LPR") technology to scan license plates as part of its daily enforcement routine. Do your part to avoid a ticket.
- Permit holders must maintain their plates and replace plates that are bent, scratched or otherwise no longer "reflective".
- Keep your plates unobstructed by trailer hitches, EZ Pass holders, affiliation symbols and decorations.
- For vehicles not bearing front plates, be certain not to pull through a row when parking; plates must face the drive aisle adjacent to the parking space.
Former West Windsor Landfill Remediation Fact Sheet
The Former West Windsor Township Municipal Landfill is located at the north side of the intersection of Alexander Road and Old Bear Brook Road, in West Windsor Township, New Jersey and encompasses 9.4 acres of land. The site was utilized as farmland until it was developed as the West Windsor Solid Waste Landfill between 1963 and 1973. The site was then utilized as the West Windsor Compost Facility for the composting of leaves and grass clippings. Beginning in 2008 the site was utilized as a construction staging area by the NJDOT for the Alexander Road bridge replacement project. The site is currently vacant.
Initial sampling activities were conducted from June 2010 - July 2010 which confirmed the presence of landfill/waste disposal operations at the site. Concentrations of PCB's, metals, VOC's and semi-volatiles were identified above the New Jersey Residential Direct Contract Standards in soils. Contaminants are generally consistent with previous solid waste landfill operations at the site. On August 3, 2010, West Windsor Township "Opted-In" to the NJDEP's Licensed Site Remediation Professional review process to facilitate Site Investigation and Remedial Investigation activities at the site. The NJDEP Case Number 10-08-03-1314-44-25 was assigned to the project.
Additional remedial investigations including wetlands delineation, soil and groundwater sampling were conducted through 2011 and 2012 to delineate the horizontal and vertical extent of contamination at the site and evaluate reuse options.
In April 2012, West Windsor Township and the West Windsor Parking Authority submitted a Remedial Action Work Plan together with all reports and permit applications to permanently close the landfill and redevelop the site as a Commuter Parking Area. Construction is scheduled to begin in the summer/fall of 2012 and be completed in the spring 2013.
Construction of New Commuter Lot...
In cooperation with the Township, the WWPA recently awarded a contract for remediation and paving of the Township’s long-abandoned “compost site” off Alexander Road. At no cost to the taxpayer, this project will provide as many as 650 new parking spaces, which will accommodate Township residents on permit wait lists as well as a good number of occasional parkers. Clearing of vegetation and staging of construction equipment is already underway. In order to provide a suitable foundation for the new lot surface, an early construction task will be to compact the ground by dropping heavy weights in a process known as “deep dynamic compaction”. Vibrations from this activity will be intermittently felt in the vicinity of the project and will be closely monitored for compliance with allowable standards. Subsequent construction activities will include storm water management, paving, lighting and landscaping, with completion targeted for early Spring. This report will be updated as and when appropriate.
Parking Permit Payment Reminder...
Permit holders are responsible to pay on-line or ensure that full payment for the coming quarter is received by the Authority no later than the 15th of the month prior to the new quarter. If the 15th falls on a weekend or a holiday, please ensure the payment is received in the Parking Authority Office prior to the 15th to avoid a late fee.
PERMIT HOLDERS MUST KEEP LICENSE PLATE INFO CURRENT OR RISK GETTING A TICKET... Enforcement procedures check license plates against permit numbers.
Whether its a new car, a loaner, a rental or a company car, and even if its just for one day, permit holders are responsible to make sure that all license plates used under a permit are properly registered with the West Windsor Parking Authority. It is not enough to merely display a permit; a parked vehicle bearing a license plate that is not properly registered under that permit will be ticketed without warning.
Detailed instructions are provided within this website, and further assistance may be obtained by contacting the West Windsor Parking Authority at 609-799-3130.
Rideshare spaces are available at the Princeton Jct. Train Station and permit holders are assigned a specific numbered parking space within the rideshare parking permit area. You must have at least two (2) occupants every time you arrive at the lot. For further information and to request a spot please contact us at 609-799-3130.
NOTICE OF CHANGE IN POLICY REGARDING LATE PERMIT PAYMENTS
Effective for Payments Due on or after January 15, 2011
In response to recent customer requests, the Authority has modified its policies to avoid penalizing permit customers with the hardships of suspension and/or termination of permit privileges in the event of late payments.
Every permit holder remains responsible to ensure receipt by the Authority of a permit payment by the due date. Late payments will continue to result in a schedule of late fees that have been changed as follows. Payment of the applicable late fee (now the same for all permit categories) shall be required to maintain uninterrupted permit parking privileges, meaning that the new permit may not be issued until the applicable late fee is received by the Authority.
First Offense: $50 Subsequent Offenses: $100
A “Subsequent Offense” is defined as any event of late payment occurring within three (3) years of a previous event of late payment.
As a result of these changes, second offenders will no longer be subject to a three (3) month suspension of permit parking privileges and third offenders will no longer be dropped from the permit parking program (which heretofore required returning to the bottom of the wait list).
