This chapter shall be titled "Resident Handicapped On-Street Parking" and shall state the following.
The purpose of this chapter is to establish a restricted parking zone, by ordinance, in front of a residence occupied by a handicapped person, which person has been issued a windshield placard or wheelchair-symbol license plate for the vehicle owned by the handicapped person or a vehicle owned by a member of the immediate family who resides with the handicapped person.
This chapter will be enacted in accordance with N.J.S.A. 39:4-197.6.
There shall be established a Committee to review and approve the placement of on-street handicapped parking. The members of such Committee shall be the Executive Director of the Parking Authority, or designee as approved by the Authority, the Director of Public Works or designee, and the Head of the Office on Aging in the Department of Health and Human Services. The Committee shall establish application and review procedures for the approval of such designations. These procedures shall have the following criteria.
All those residences formally designated and having responded to the request for information by the City of Camden Parking Authority prior to these ordinances will be grandfathered and will not be required to pay the initial application fee nor the annual renewal registration fee for the first year. Any applicant who has applied prior to the effective date of this chapter shall pay the application fee but shall not have to pay the installation fee.
There shall be two types of permits:
Type 1: A handicapped spot will be allowed in front of the residence, which spot shall be reserved for any handicapped operator.
Type 2: The authorized location shall only be utilized by the applicant and only by the vehicle the license plate for which corresponds with the license plate number on the posted sign.
Any person improperly designated a resident handicap parking restricted space shall be subject to the penalties under the New Jersey Statutes Annotated.
