Relates to the city of Albany pilot residential parking system and extending the effectiveness thereof.
TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 454 of the laws of 2010, amending the vehicle and traffic law relating to authorizing a pilot residential parking permit system in the city of Albany, in relation to the effectiveness thereof
PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Extends the City of Albany's pilot residential parking permit system for two years from the date of its implementation.
SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Amends Section 3 of Chapter 454 of the laws of 2010 by extending the pilot program for four years from the date of implementation.
This would extend the sunset date of the Albany Common Council's two-year pilot residential parking permit program for an additional two years to allow further review of the program's success in alleviating parking problems for Albany residents who live within a one-mile radius of the Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza. Parking and the lack of it in the City of Albany is a growing problem in many areas of the city. An expanding workforce within the city, the proliferation of a large student population and a lack of driveways for pre-automobile homes has resulted in a glut of automobiles on city streets that causes residents to have tremendous difficulty finding on-street parking in their neighborhood. The Residential Parking Permit allows residents the ability to park near their homes.
PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
Amends chapter 454 of the laws of 2010
None to State
This act shall take effect immediately.
