 Introduced  by Sen. KAVANAGH -- 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 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,
 CARROLL  GARDENS,  COBBLE  HILL, BOERUM HILL, COLUMBIA STREET WATERFRONT
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
