SUMMIT, N.J., March 20, 2020 – In a combined effort to support local businesses, the City of Summit Parking Services Agency is working with Summit Downtown Inc. to provide designated parking spaces in downtown Summit to facilitate curbside pickup of items ordered by customers from businesses either online or by telephone.
“During this challenging time, it is important to do everything we can to help and sustain our local businesses,” explains Summit Mayor Nora Radest. “Creating designated parking spots that will turnover quickly will hopefully encourage people to order takeout and shop in our downtown while maintaining safe social distancing.”
Designated parking spaces will be indicated by signs reading, “Curbside Pickup Only” and are reserved for patrons of businesses offering this service. If a vehicle is parked in a curbside pickup space for more than 15 minutes, it may be issued a parking violation.
Summit Downtown Inc. has published a list of businesses and restaurants that are offering takeout and delivery, as well as options to purchase online or by telephone.
