[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of Washington 3-9-1982. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Pursuant to the provisions of N.J.S.A. 40:48-2.46, the Township Engineer shall provide the Township Committee with an individual plan for each privately owned public parking area to which this chapter shall be applicable. Said plan shall contain the outline of each parking area and shall clearly designate areas of traffic flow and areas or zones in which there shall be no stopping, standing or parking of vehicles.
Upon receipt of each individual plan, the Township Committee shall have prepared an ordinance adopting the plan and an amendment to § 92-6 of this chapter, which shall contain a narrative description of the regulations contained in the plan. Upon final adoption of such an ordinance, said plans will be kept on file by the Township Clerk. Amendments and changes to such plan may be made by following the same procedure as is established for the adoption of an initial plan.
Upon final adoption of the ordinance adopting a plan and amending this chapter, an appropriate copy of each plan shall be provided to the owner and/or operator of each individual privately owned public parking area. The owner and/or operator of each such area shall then, at his or its own cost and expense, cause the parking area to be painted with stripings in accordance with the plan provided to each such individual owner, operator or corporation. In addition, appropriate signs shall be provided and installed by the owner and/or operator at his or its own cost and expense. Each sign and the placement therefor shall conform to the State of New Jersey standard traffic sign criteria and must be in strict accordance with the plan provided. The failure of the owner to act within 90 days of receipt of such plan shall be considered a violation of this chapter, and each day thereafter shall be considered a separate violation.
After the markings and/or signs are installed in accordance with said plan aforesaid, the property owner shall be required to maintain the same in good condition so the public will always be kept aware that said areas are restricted.
Any person, firm or corporation who fails to provide the striping or signs as herein provided shall, upon conviction for failing or refusing to comply herewith, be subject to a fine of not more than $500 or to imprisonment for a term not to exceed 90 days, or both, in the discretion of the Judge of the Municipal Court.
