The Parking Services Division of the Westfield Police Department is ready to assist you with parking requests in the Town of Westfield. Whether to place your name on the waiting lists for commuter/employee parking, issue permits for commuter and residential parking, purchase Smart Cards or tokens, purchase meter bags, or file for a dumpster permit, the Parking Services Division provides valuable services to Westfield residents, businesses, and visitors.
As part of the Town of Westfield's commitment to making you and your customer's parking experience as convenient as possible, you may have noticed recently that new pay stations have been installed in all municipal parking lots and along South Avenue.
These new multi-space pay stations replace outdated and service-prone machines and provide easier and more convenient payment options. These options include:
- Credit card
- Debit card
- Payment by coin
- Phone app
- Smart Cards
The machines have electronic, easy-to-read displays, and instructions.
The Town of Westfield offers a variety of permits for commuters, employees, and residents as well as daily parking permits.
Metered parking is available throughout Town
Adding Time to Pay Stations
You may add time to your parking space to the designated maximum time allowed from any pay station in town (not to exceed the maximum posted limit). Follow instructions on the pay station.
Daily Parking Permits
Daily parking (hangtag) permits are available on a first-come-first-served basis to Westfield residents in Lot Number 3 for $5 per day. The Parking Services officer arrives at 6:30 am and leaves when the available daily permits are sold. If the daily hangtags are sold out, the officer will turn on their overhead vehicle lights and remain in the lot for about 15 minutes afterward in order to direct patrons to numbered spaces. Please have proof of residency ready for the officer.
Beginning January 14, 2019, in an effort to provide more options as the Lord and Taylor lots become restricted, we will sell a limited amount of daily hangtags for Lot 6 (Watterson Street lot). These daily permits will be a different color and marked for Lot 6 only. They will be sold in Lot 3, for the same amount of $5 to Westfield residents only, once the Lot 3 daily hangtags are sold out. Please note the number of available daily permits will be lessened in the event of accumulating snow that limits parking spaces.
Loading Zones are located on:
- Central Avenue
- E Broad Street
- Elm Street
- Prospect Street
- Quimby Street
The Town of Westfield offers the following free parking options:
- Free parking in permit spaces after 10 am in Lot Number 3 (South Avenue Train lot).
