AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the residen-
  tial  parking  system  in  the  village of Bronxville in the county of
  Westchester; and providing for the  repeal  of  such  provisions  upon
  expiration thereof

  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 there is a potential for a temporary severe shortage of parking for
residents  in  the  village  of  Bronxville, Westchester county from the
displacement of approximately one hundred  eighty  vehicles  from  three
public  parking  lots  located adjacent to the Metro-North train station
abutting Kensington road in the village of Bronxville  during  a  thirty
month  period of construction at such locations. This lack of parking is
likely to result in  traffic  hazards,  congestion  and  air  and  noise
pollution, and could pose a hazard to residents and other pedestrians in
the  area.  The  legislature  further  finds  that,  contingent upon the
adoption of a finding by the village board of the village of  Bronxville
that  such  public  parking  lots  will  be  closed or otherwise be made
unavailable for public parking, that such vehicles will be displaced and
that a residential parking system would be in  the  public  interest,  a
residential  parking  system  would reduce such hazards and would reduce
pollution levels as well. The legislature,  therefore,  hereby  declares
the  necessity  of  this  act  to authorize the village of Bronxville 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:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
