As the Corona Virus Pandemic continues to complicate the lives of the residents of Hartsdale and greater Greenburgh, the Parking Commissioners of the Hartsdale Public Parking District have met in teleconference to discuss how we might further support our residents who are now forced to remain sequestered at home.
Effective immediately, the Commissioners have unanimously voted to temporarily adjust local parking in Hartsdale as follows:
1. All parking regulations in Hartsdale will remain in force, with the exception of parking meters, normally operating Monday through Saturday, between the hours of 8:00 am to 8:00 pm.
2. This new regulation will remain in effect through April 15th or until further notice. The status of environmental conditions will then be further assessed and any necessary adjustments to this regulation will be announced on our web site.
3. All other parking regulations such as handicapped parking zones, fire zone regulations including fire hydrants, and no double parking will be enforced, and tickets written for violations.
Although payment of parking meters is not required during this pandemic, time limit parking in the business district will be enforced to insure that parking remain available for fast and safe pick-up of food, medicines and supplies.
We hope that these new regulations will make our neighbors’ lives a little easier during this difficult time.
HARTSDALE PUBLIC PARKING DISTRICT
The Hartsdale Public Parking District was created as a “Special District” by a NYS Legislative Act of 1952 to provide commuter parking for residents of the Unincorporated Town of Greenburgh and to provide general public metered parking in support of the local business community.
The District is governed by a Board of Commissioners. Parcels of land were conveyed to the District by the Town of Greenburgh, Penn Central Railroad, and local private owners for the development of parking lots and garages. These properties were developed autonomous of the Town of Greenburgh and are solely user supported operating on income from permit sales and parking meter revenue; the Hartsdale Public Parking District does not benefit from any Town services, tax revenue, or parking violation fines. The District owns and operates two multi-level garages and four open parking lots.
The Hartsdale Parking District has been serving the residents of the Unincorporated Town of Greenburgh, local East Hartsdale Avenue merchants, and the general public since April 22, 1952.
