Mayor to Call This Morning for Residential Parking Permits

The Mayor's press schedule for today only says that Mayor Bloomberg will be making an announcement at Bergen and Bond Streets this morning at 11:30AM. The announcement, however, is one of interest: The Mayor and DOT Commissioner will announce "residential parking permits as part of congestion pricing." It is unknown right now which neighborhoods will be included. There has been significant sentiments in some quarters in Brooklyn for a residential permit plan as part of congestion pricing, particularly because residents in some neighborhoods feel their streets will be used for commuter parking. The source that alerted us to the announcements says, "This should be interesting."

Ho, Ho , Ho,

How long will that take.
In CB6 we are to have the alternate side parking changed for over a year already.
I guess it's too much of a cash cow for the city.

This is interesting. Some Long Island politicans are going to howl...even though LI towns are known for this approach.

Probably a real good idea.
