Residential Parking Permits Pushed for Brooklyn Heights


Various State and City politicians joined forces on Friday to announce their commitment to bringing residential permit parking to Brooklyn Heights. Under a program supported by State Senator Daniel Squadron, Assemblywoman Joan Millman and Council Member David Yassky, neighborhood residents would be able to purchase an annual permit for a “nominal” fee that would allow them to park on residential streets; metered parking would still be available to the general public on the major commercial streets. This plan is a classic win-win-win: it protects the community, it cuts congestion, and it provides revenue for public transit, said Squadron. For years, I have supported a residential permit parking plan for New York City, said Yassky in a press release. The plan announced today will reduce congestion and illegal parking in our neighborhoods, and improve the quality of life for our residents. I continue to fully support that effort.
