City of Monessen Mayor Matthew Shorraw announced that a new Downtown Parking Ordinance (Ordinance number 4 of 2020), went into effect in the City of Monessen on Friday, June 19, 2020.

The new ordinance will not only update and consolidate the 75 years of parking-related ordinances in the city, but will also provide for the elimination of hourly metered parking in the Downtown District. Mayor Shorraw and City Council adopted the measure at the June 9, 2020 City Council meeting.

“We are very excited about this ordinance and all of the hard work that went into it, by our Solicitor,” said Shorraw. “We are hopeful that the removal of the meters, which have been more of a nuisance in recent years, will help our local businesses in Downtown Monessen.”

Some notable highlights are listed below.

  • The ordinance allows for the gradual removal of all parking meters in Downtown Monessen, beginning on June 19, 2020.
  • All current, hourly-metered parking will become free, 2-hour parking during business hours (8am-5pm), and free, unrestricted parking during off-hours.
  • Vehicles that are over-parked in the 2-hour parking zones during business hours will be ticketed by police, in the same fashion as a typical parking ticket.
  • Current No Parking Zones remain the same.
  • Current leased parking areas throughout Downtown remain the same. Leased parking for a specific parking location in Downtown can be purchased at the Monessen Police Department.
  • There is to be no parking, stopping, or standing, on city sidewalks, no parking zones, bus lanes, driveway entrances, or any other marked zone.
  • Parking exceptions can be made for residents who live downtown and utilize on-street parking.

If there are any questions, residents may contact Monessen City Hall at 724-684-9000.
