Residential Parking Permits Spotted in PlaNYC Documents
Today’s Crain’s Insider reports:
Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s PlaNYC 2030 documents reveal the Bloomberg administration has dropped its opposition to residential permit parking, which allows only neighborhood residents to park during business hours. Plan documents say it could be introduced in areas that complain of commuters parking there to avoid the proposed $8 Manhattan congestion fee. Popular in other cities, it was blocked by transportation Commissioner Iris Weinshall despite pleas from Brooklyn Heights civic leaders and Councilman David Yassky. But Weinshall was succeeded last week by a new DOT chief, Janette Sadik-Khan, who may be more amenable to the idea.
