Residential parking permits being considered by city council for some NYC neighborhoods

Anyone who lives in New York City knows the stress of finding a parking spot near their home, but residents may soon be given neighborhood parking permits.  State Sen. Daniel Squadron, D-Brooklyn, has introduced a bill to establish residential parking permits for a "reasonable" annual fee [to be determined].  The issue of parking raises questions in neighborhoods with large numbers of commuters, as to whether residents or small businesses should receive parking preference.
Mayor Bloomberg, who previously supported residential parking permits as part of his congestion pricing plan, is now undecided and concerned for local businesses.

A City Council hearing will be held Wednesday on the proposal.
