BILL NUMBER: S396

TITLE OF BILL :

An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to
authorizing a pilot residential parking permit system in the city of
Albany and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration
thereof

PURPOSE :

Provides for the city of Albany to adopt a pilot residential parking
permit system within certain areas of the city.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :

Section 1: Legislative findings and intent.

Section 2: Amends the vehicle and traffic law by adding a new section
1640-m, which would allow the common council of the city of Albany to
adopt a local ordinance to provide for a pilot residential parking
permit system with a two year sunset. Requires that the residential
parking system may only be established within a one mile radius of the
Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza. Permits will be issued on no
more than 2,750 spaces within the permit areas. The permitted streets
within this area shall be described in a local law or ordinance
adopted by the common council pursuant to this section. Provides that
no permit will be required on streets where the adjacent properties
are zoned for commercial, office and/or retail use. Outlines the
local law or ordinances to be adopted by the common council of the
city of Albany. Provides for a public hearing prior to implementation.

Section 3: Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION :

This is a two-year pilot program that attempts to alleviate the
parking problems faced by downtown residents. 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. This
leaves the residents of the City with the almost impossible task of
parking near their homes.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :

2007/2008 - S.3067/A.5697 Remained in the Senate/Assembly Committee on
Transportation

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :

None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
Immediately.
