Purpose.

This chapter is amended in accordance with N.J.S.A. 39:4-197.6 conferring upon the Borough a right to establish resident handicapped on-street parking in order to preserve and safeguard the public health, safety and welfare.
B. 
Enactment. There is hereby established, in accordance with N.J.S.A. 39:4-197.6, permissible resident handicapped parking spaces within public streets of the Borough of Wenonah subject to the following criteria:
(1) 
Any person requesting an on-street resident handicapped parking space shall be a resident of the Borough of Wenonah who shall make application to the Wenonah Police Department. The application shall be reviewed and approved or denied by the Chief of Police. A denial of an application may be appealed to the Borough Council if a request, from the resident aggrieved by the denial, is received within 20 days from the date of denial. Any denial of the Chief of Police shall be confirmed in writing with a copy provided to the applicant.
(2) 
Any person requesting an on-street resident handicapped parking space, to qualify, shall have been issued a wheelchair symbol license plate or windshield placard issued by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission which is properly displayed in either the handicapped resident's vehicle or a vehicle of an immediate family member who also resides at the residence of the handicapped person.
(3) 
The subject property shall pass an on-site inspection by the Wenonah Police Department, which inspection shall determine whether handicapped parking will interfere with the normal flow of traffic or whether there is immediate, adjacent off-street parking available to the applicant. For the purposes of this criteria, available "off-street parking" shall mean adjacent public parking or private driveway parking.
(4) 
The applicant shall comply with the provisions of N.J.S.A. 39:4-198(o) and 39:4-197.6 regulating handicapped parking in designated spaces.

Such designation shall be within an area on the street within the extended property line of the subject residence, but otherwise shall be subject to the discretion of the Police Department and the Chief of Police. Upon approval, the authorizing ordinance shall designate appropriate signage for the handicapped parking space and authorize issuance of a permit by the Police Department relative thereto.
C. 
Violations and penalties. Any person improperly parking in a properly designated resident handicapped restricted parking space shall be subject to the penalties provided by N.J.S.A. 39:4-203 and N.J.S.A. 39:4-207.7.
