DOT Takes Action On Gerritsen Beach Parking Signs

The following is a press release from the offices of State Senator Marty Golden:

State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) today is announcing that the Department of Transportation is giving attention to two areas of concern related to parking signs in Gerritsen Beach.

Senator Golden has received notification that through his bringing it to the attention of the Department of Transportation, a No Standing Anytime sign, outside a closed physical therapist has been removed. The sign, which has now been removed from in front of 2408 Gerritsen Avenue, was causing the issuance of wrongful parking summonses. The sign was originally requested for the purposes of ambulance and ambulette transport to and from the physical therapist which closed in 2008.

Senator Golden has also received notice from the Department of Transportation that they will be replacing No Standing Anytime signs across from the Gerritsen Beach Volunteer Fire Department, located at 52 Seba Avenue, in an effort to provide access and parking for the Department’s fire truck and ambulance. Since the signs were incorrectly removed and cars have parked there, the emergency vehicles have had a difficult time getting into and out of the garage when responding to calls. The signs will be replaced by the end of March.

Senator Marty Golden stated, “I thank the Department of Transportation for their attention to both of these matters. It is important that we make sure that our parking signs are up to date so to guarantee a greater quality of life for all residents of Gerritsen Beach.”
