SENATOR GOLDEN: TWO HOUR METERS TO BE INSTALLED ON 3rd AND 5th AVENUES IN APRIL

Brooklyn – State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) today is
announcing that the New York City Department of Transportation has
responded to his request and has approved two hour parking meters for 3rd
and 5th Avenue.

The Department of Transportation has determined based on Senator
Golden’s request that the need for additional parking time along these two
commercial avenues is warranted. The Bureau of Parking will complete the
work to affect this change by April of this year.

Senator Golden stated, “Two hour parking meters for Bay Ridge’s 3rd
and 5th Avenue is a tremendous victory for all residents and business
owners, as well as those who shop and dine here. For years, those who have
parked at meters and dined on 3rd and 5th Avenues, many times had to step
out during their meal to feed their meters.”

Golden continued, “These two hour meters will greatly help to improve
the economic climate of our community and will hopefully reduce the number
of parking summonses. As we continue to work towards rebuilding our local
economy, this change will create new opportunities for our stores and
restaurants to excel. This decision of the Department of Transportation is
appreciated and will be met with much support.”
