Int 2277-2021 *Keith Powers  Proposed Int. No. 2277-ATruck loading zones.IntroductionThe bill would require that all permits of 180 days or more for a street segment with a truck loading zone carry a stipulation that such zone may not be occupied or obstructed. In the event that permitted work necessitates a loading zone obstruction, the Department of Transportation (DOT) may require that the applicant maintain a temporary loading zone, and revoke a permit or refuse to renew a permit for non-compliance. The bill would also amend the Administrative Code to prohibit the use of city-issued parking placards in certain spaces in the central business district of Manhattan, including truck-loading zones. The bill would also codify new and existing regulations for truck loading zones and commercial parking meter areas, including those related to how such spaces are metered or reserved and the lengths of time that they may be occupied, and would allow DOT to authorize cargo bicycles or other sustainable modes to use loading zones and to create reduced rates for zero emission vehicles.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available

Int 2422-2021 *Ydanis A. Rodriguez Proposed Int. No. 2422-AParking MetersIntroductionThis bill would authorize the use of pay-by-plate parking meters in addition to pay-and-display parking meters. Pay-by-plate parking meters would require a person to enter the vehicle’s license plate to register payment for parking, and would be capable of tracking payment by the vehicle’s license plate, rather than by paper receipt. Before the Department of Transportation (DOT) makes changes to the parking meter rates or replaces a pay-and-display parking meter with a pay-by-plate parking meter, DOT would provide 30-days written notice to the Council Member and Community Board in whose district such change would occur and post such change on the DOT’s website. Additionally, parking time could only be used on the blockface, or street section, for which it was purchased and could not be transferred between blockfaces. This bill would also consolidate existing sections of the Administrative Code related to parking meters into one section.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
