TOWN BD SEEKS TO AMEND LAW TO ALLOW OVERNIGHT WINTER PARKING ON E HARTSDALE AVE
Release Date: October 27, 2016
Parking on East Hartsdale Ave is difficult. More and more younger people are moving to E Hartsdale Ave and they have more cars. There are not enough parking spaces in the apartments to accommodate each of the residents.
Between December 1 and March 15 we prohibit parking on streets in Greenburgh whether it snows or not. The police department supports making an exception on East Hartsdale Ave. Parking would only be prohibited if a snow emergency is declared between the hours of 1 AM to 6 AM. If snow is anticipated we will advise residents not to park on the street. During times when snow is not anticipated cars can park on the street--which should enable everyone to find a parking space. During snow storms residents can park at Webb field (Richard Presser park). We will use digital boards to advise residents. The Town Board has scheduled a public hearing for November 21 at 7:30 PM to hear from the public. The hearing takes place at Town Hall.

Hartsdale Avenue between the hours of 1:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m., pursuant to Section 460.20 of the Town

WHEREAS, several Town residents residing in the vicinity of East Hartsdale Avenue and
surrounding streets have had difficulty locating parking during the period from December 1 to March 15
and have recommended amending Chapter 460 as it pertains to parking on East Hartsdale Avenue, to
reflect a snow emergency system wherein parking is only limited to the times when it actually snows; and
WHEREAS, the Town Board is interested in seeking public comment to determine whether
amending Section 460 to reflect a snow emergency system limiting parking to times when a Snow
Emergency is declared is a viable alternative to completely eliminating parking from December 1 to
