Alternate side parking reforms extended

Adjustments to alternate side of the street parking regulations to allow for street cleaning have been extended indefinitely, according to Mayor de Blasio.

Mayor de Blasio on Friday announced that adjustments to alternate side parking first introduced in June will be in place until further notice.

They were supposed to revert back to normal as of Sunday, Sept. 20.

It marks the second time in two weeks the adjustments were extended just before regulations were supposed to revert back to pre-June status.

Under the adjustments, nonmetered streets that have multiple ASP days each week to permit street cleaning will continue to be cleaned only on the last day listed for the week.

Amended rules pertain to non-metered residential “side streets” and not to commercial areas. A street with ASP regulations posted on Tuesday and Friday, for example, will be cleaned on Friday only. Daily sweeping regulations in metered areas will not change, and the DSNY will continue cleaning streets with posted No Standing, No Stopping and No Parking regulations as needed.

The city first unveiled the reforms in June.

They were supposed to revert back on Saturday, Sept. 5, until the mayor announced an extension through Sept. 19 on Sept. 4.

Alternate side parking has been in place in New York City since the mid-1950s, and regulations are currently in place on nearly 2,300 miles of New York City streets.
