Uptown Council Member Rodriguez Establishing Residential Parking Permits In NYC

April 25, 2018

At today’s City Council stated meeting, Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez will introduce a bill that would create a citywide residential parking permit in New York City. The bill seeks to address citywide concerns of New Yorkers who struggle to find a parking spot near their homes.

If passed, the bill would establish that 80 percent of parking spaces within the residential parking zones are for permit holders, allowing for a very limited number of non-residents to park in those areas. In 2013, a report by transport researchers from City University of New York revealed that more than half of all New Yorkers would be willing to pay an annual fee for residential parking permits.

Many other cities in the country have established residential parking permits systems, including San Francisco, Boston, and Chicago.

“The lack of parking spots is a citywide problem causing New Yorkers throughout the boroughs many headaches. I look forward to working with my colleagues to bring some relief and protections to New Yorkers competing for parking spots with out-of-town commuters,” said Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez.
