Public Hearing to Reduce Alternate Side Parking

Public Hearing On the Reduction of Alternate Side Parking for Community District 8

Date: Tuesday, November 15, 2011
Location: Hope City Empowerment Center / 650 Washington Avenue (near Bergen Street)
Time: 6:30 PM-8:30 PM

You are invited to attend a Public Hearing to discuss the reduction in Alternate Side Street Cleaning frequency.  Community Board 8 is seeking public comments on the proposal to reduce street cleaning days throughout the District. Currently, the Dept. of Sanitation cleans the street 4 times a week, and the reduction would scale the cleaning to twice a week.

Your input is needed. Verbal testimony will be limited to 3 minutes per person; written testimony can also be submitted to the Board. This is just one part of an extensive process to have ASP regulations in the District reduced.

As this is something that will affect many things in the District, including utility service delivery and snow removal during winter months, it is imperative that we receive feedback from those that will be directly affected: the residents of District 8. The item will be voted on at an upcoming Community Board 8 general meeting after review of all comments submitted, feedback from utility companies, and other information.

We hope that you will come out and participate in this important public hearing.

One thought on “Public Hearing to Reduce Alternate Side Parking

  1. I have a question to pose. Why is it necessary to move cars 4 times a week for street cleaning? There are many nearby neighborhoods in which the residence are only required to move their cars only twice weekly, and these blocks are perpendicular to major business zones.
