S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 795 2013-2014 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E (PREFILED) January 9, 2013 ___________ Introduced by Sen. SQUADRON -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Transportation AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to authorizing a residential parking permit system in the city of New York THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings and intent. The legislature finds that a lack of parking for residents of the city of New York has resulted in traffic hazards, congestion and air and noise pollution. In addition, such lack of parking poses a hazard to residents and other pedestrians in such areas. The legislature further finds that a residential parking system will reduce such hazards and will reduce pollution levels as well. The legis- lature, therefore, declares the necessity of this act to authorize the city of New York to adopt a residential parking system in accordance with the provisions of this act. S 2. The vehicle and traffic law is amended by adding a new section 1640-n to read as follows: S 1640-N. RESIDENTIAL PARKING SYSTEM IN THE CITY OF NEW YORK. 1. NOTWITHSTANDING THE PROVISIONS OF ANY LAW TO THE CONTRARY, THE CITY OF NEW YORK MAY, BY ADOPTION OF A LOCAL LAW OR ORDINANCE, PROVIDE FOR A RESIDENTIAL PARKING PERMIT SYSTEM AND FIX AND REQUIRE THE PAYMENT OF FEES APPLICABLE TO PARKING WITHIN CERTAIN AREAS OF THE CITY IN ACCORD- ANCE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION. 2. NO PERMIT SHALL BE REQUIRED ON STREETS WHERE THE ADJACENT PROPER- TIES ARE ZONED FOR COMMERCIAL OR RETAIL USE. 3. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION SHALL NOT APPLY TO THOSE SPACES IN THE PERMIT AREAS WHICH, AS OF THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THIS SECTION, HAVE METERED OR HIGHLY RESTRICTED PARKING REGULATIONS. EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted. LBD01987-01-3
