Port Jefferson Village will start charging for parking in the downtown area again next week, with the free winter season scheduled to come to a close.

On March 15, visitors to the business district without a village resident sticker will have to pay $0.25 for every half hour they park in the municipal lots, between 10 a.m. and midnight every day.

The funds collected through the parking meters have supported capital projects around the village, such as parking lot improvements and work at Baker’s Alley, a historical strip downtown that due to neglect over the years had become overgrown and hidden.
