Albany Common Council votes on parking permits

Posted:

ALBANY, NY – The Albany Common Council will vote on a parking permit system on Monday night.

The parking permit system in Albany has been a years-long controversy. The system would create better accommodates for downtown Albany residents.

On street parking can be difficult to find for residents and the city hopes this will help them. On Monday night the Common Council will vote to designate 2,750 parking spots in the downtown area as residential permit parking only.

The zones that will be included are Lark Street/Center Square, Mansions/Pastures, and the Ten Broeck triangle area. Residents will also have to pay $25.00 for the permits.

Cars without permits would be limited to park for two hours between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on weekdays. If the permit program is approved it is expected to start in October.

The city will be voting on the permit parking system at tonight's common council meeting. NEWS10 will be attending the meeting and we'll update you tonight @ 11:00 p.m.
