Resident “R” Parking Permits
Residents can begin to purchase the 2020 Resident parking permit on Monday, December 2nd at the Village Clerk’s Office. The annual fee remains unchanged at $100 for the year. Residents must present a current driver’s license, vehicle registration, and utility bill as proof of Village residency. If you rent an apartment or a house in the Village, a current lease agreement must also be presented to verify residency. Parking permits can be purchased Monday through Friday, during regular business hours from 8:45 am – 4:15 pm. On Wednesday, December 11th, the Village Clerk’s Office will remain open through 8:00 pm for the sole purpose of selling the Resident parking permit. The 2020 “R” parking permit must be affixed to your car by Monday, January 6th in order to be in compliance with Village Code. If you have any questions or need further information, please call the Village Clerk’s Office at (516) 354-0022.
The Village Board continues to find new ways to make up for parking spaces lost because of the LIRR Mainline construction. A new commuter parking lot is available at 115 New Hyde Park Road and can be used for parking. Additionally, meter spaces on Plaza Avenue, east of New Hyde Park Road, have been converted to Voucher parking.
The merchants below are authorized voucher agents who sell parking vouchers on a per diem basis. The cost is $4 per day.
- Mike’s Convenience Store – 812 Jericho Turnpike
- Shell Gas Station – 1500 Jericho Turnpike
- NJ McCann – 901 2nd Avenue
- Lakeville Pharmacy – 749 Hillside Avenue
Vouchers can be used until they expire and no refunds will be given for vouchers that have not been used.
Muni-Meters Pilot Program
The Village will begin to test the Parkeon Muni-Meter System at the LIRR railroad. A Muni-Meter system is a centralized parking meter program that provides drivers with the speed and convenience to pay for parking without the need to pre-purchase vouchers. The system also offers a flexible and convenient way to pay for daily voucher parking, such as cash, credit cards, and on-line payments. Six machines have been installed along 2nd and 3rd Avenues. The Muni-Meters system will be evaluated on the basis of volume, customer payment preferences, and operational capacity. If successful, a comprehensive roll-out will be considered with the ultimate goal to replace the paper vouchers being used today. To offset the cost of the machines, the Muni-Meter daily parking fee will be $5. Scratch off vouchers can still be purchased at authorized dealers at the current rate of $4. They can be used until they expire. No refunds will be given for vouchers that have not been used. If you have questions or need further information, please call the Code Enforcement Unit at 354-0064.
Special “Class B” Parking Permits
These are permits issued to residents whose homes were constructed before off-street parking requirements became Village law. As such, these residences do not have driveways or garages and they are afforded space on the street to park. They pay a fee of $50 per year and these spots are marked by signs indicating “Special Parking District.”
Please call Code Enforcement at 354-0064 for any questions regarding parking in the Village.
