ALBANY, N.Y. - The State Office of General Services Commissioner announced that 1,000 parking spaces will be made available to state employees who work in downtown Albany.
This Temporary Parking Assistance Initiative will allocate these spaces based on state service to PEF and CSEA members who presently do not have spaces in state lots.
OGS initiated this one-time, single purpose allocation for downtown state parking after consultation with PEF and CSEA to provide timely relief to state employees who may be impacted by the City of Albany's Residential Parking Permit System.
These temporary allocations are being made in advance of a comprehensive restructuring of the state's downtown Albany parking system projected to be completed and re-launched by OGS in the Spring 2013 in consultation with the members of the state's Downtown Albany Parking Committee.
Members of PEF and CSEA who do not currently have a parking permit for state lots and are interested must complete a form and submit it by February 13. Complete instructions and the form can be found at www.ogs.ny.gov.
