   Committee on Transportation
 
 AN  ACT  to amend the vehicle and traffic law and the public authorities
   law, in relation to authorizing a residential parking permit system in
   the city of New York; 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
 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.
   § 2. The vehicle and traffic law is amended by adding  a  new  section
 1640-r to read as follows:
   §  1640-R.  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 THE AREA OF THE CITY IN WHICH SUCH
 PARKING SYSTEM IS IN EFFECT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE  PROVISIONS  OF  THIS
 SECTION.
   2.  SUCH  RESIDENTIAL  PARKING  PERMIT  SYSTEM MAY ONLY BE ESTABLISHED
 WITHIN THAT AREA OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK  WITHIN  THE  NEIGHBORHOODS  OF
 CLINTON  HILL,  FORT  GREENE,  PROSPECT  HEIGHTS,  PARK  SLOPE, GOWANUS,
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
