Parking in the Community

Parking in the surrounding community is limited. Employees, students and visitors must compete with neighborhood residents for a parking space. Some nearby streets allow for permit parking, which means only residents of that block can park for 24 hours; others can park on that street but for a limited amount of time. It is important to read the signs and follow the parking rules set forth by Philadelphia and Montgomery counties. If you should get a ticket in Philadelphia you can pay for it on-line.

If you get a ticket in Montgomery County:

A traffic ticket or citation should be paid within 10 days and mailed to the district court listed on the citation. There are three district courts in Lower Merion Township: Ardmore, Bala Cynwyd and Narberth.
