S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 2797 2021-2022 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E January 25, 2021 ___________ 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.
