CB14 Frees Up More Parking On Church Avenue With 1-Hour Meters

Posted on:

At the request of Brooklyn Community Board 14,  the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) has reduced the parking regulations on Church Avenue from 2-hour metered parking to 1-hour parking.

“We are very glad that CB14, DOT and the Church Avenue BID were able to work together on improving the flow of traffic and the availability of parking on one of the most heavily trafficked commercial strips in our district,” said Alvin M. Berk, Chairman.

Last year, the Board’s Transportation Committee, headed by co-chairs Morris Sacks and Joseph Basso, introduced a resolution, which was subsequently adopted by the Board, recommending to DOT that the time regulations for metered parking be reduced to encourage a greater turnover of parking spaces, reduce double parking, and therefore improve overall traffic conditions on Church Avenue.

DOT’s alternative proposal, the Park Smart Program, would have established higher parking meters rates that would increase during “peak” hours when DOT determined there was higher demand for parking.

Shop Brooklyn“In these difficult economic times, we want to ensure that our local commercial strips are as welcoming to potential customers as possible.  This means more available and affordable parking so people continue to Shop Brooklyn!” added Doris Ortíz, District Manager.
