The DOT has instituted alternate side of the street parking regulations along the northern side of Emmons Avenue between Bedford & Nostrand Avenues, and along parts of Shore Parkway and apparently didn’t consult with the local Civic Association before doing it.
According to the January meeting of the Sheepshead Bay / Plumb Beach Civic Association, condominium owners and the owner of 2801 Emmons Avenue pushed for the regulations so their streets can be cleaned by the city.Â Members were upset of not being told that the regulations were being considered, and that the building owners expect the City to clean when they pay to have a maintenance budget and superintendents who are supposed to keep their areas clean.
Many feared that this was the start of more regulations to come, meaning that these alternate side of the street parking signs will keep popping up alongside condos that don’t want to use their own money to clean their areas, forcing the city to clean their streets.
The Association also claims that Mayor Bloomberg promised to leave Emmons Avenue untouched from alternate side regulations when he held a town hall meeting in August of 2005.
CB 15 was notified and everything is legit, but residents in attendance voted unanimously to fight this “surprise” change.
Whats to stop any of this from coming into Gerritsen Beach on the Avenues once new buildings are completed here?
