Each resident that has an address on Chestnut Street or Buttonwood Street or has driveway access on those streets may receive a resident permit to park on Chestnut Street or Buttonwood Street. Upon submission and verification of proof of residency (i.e., a Pennsylvania driver's license with New Hope Borough address), a permit may be issued. The permit may be used in one of two vehicles registered with the Borough Police Department.
A vehicle must have a valid registration and current inspection sticker, with proof of insurance. The permit may be used on only one vehicle at a time. (A second permit may be issued to a resident of a Class A domicile, who can show he or she has no available off-street parking.)
