Memo

BILL NUMBER:S6683

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.

JUSTIFICATION:

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

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None to State

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
