HARTSDALE, N.Y. -- It's no secret that public parking is becoming a problem for Hartsdale residents. The area of E. Hartsdale Ave. in particular has suffered due to an influx in car-owning families to the neighborhood.
In order to gauge the public's sentiment in an effort to alleviate the issue, Town Supervisor Paul Feiner has created a questionnaire for residents to voice their opinions.
"I would appreciate it residents would drop me a note highlighting their personal experiences with overnight parking on the avenue" says Feiner. "If you live on E. Hartsdale Ave please respond to the following questionnaire so we can hopefully solve the issue."
"A suggestion was made for the town to try to acquire land near the four corners and to build a new parking structure" explains Feiner. "We can also reach out to developers and ask if they would be willing to build a new structure at or near the four corners. A condition of approval would be for residents of E. Hartsdale Ave to have access to the parking during overnight hours and during weekends."
The Town Board has been discussing this problem with Stephanie Kavourias, head of the parking district, says Feiner. While the parking authority is independent of the town, administrators hope to work cooperatively with the authority and address this concern.
