[ARCHIVED] Downtown Parking Plan - Public Hearing Monday 2/4


As recommended in the 2018 Comprehensive Plan, the Village Board and staff have worked diligently to prepare a new plan for parking in the Village’s business district.  The changes are intended to better reflect the parking needs of downtown area, striking a balance between the needs of area residents, business owners, employees, commuters, and patrons.  To that end, the following changes are proposed:

  • Increase the time for parking on Main Street (east of Cottenet Street) from one to two hours.
  • Reduce the amount of six-hour parking by converting approximately 110 spaces to two-hour parking. This would primarily be accomplished by designating the west side of most side streets as two-hour parking (N. Buckhout, Cottenet, Dutcher, Eckar, and Ferris) while the east side of those streets will remain six-hour parking along with newly designated six-hour parking on N. Astor Street. Two-hour parking will provide greater turnover of parking spaces for use by business patrons while six-hour parking will be available for employees in the business district and short-term “day trip” commuters to New York City.
  • Allow overnight parking on Main Street and all side streets.

Maps have been prepared showing the existing and proposed parking time limits. The text of the proposed local laws is available for review.  There are 4 separate documents that make up the proposed changes to the downtown parking plan, although the vast majority of the significant changes are contained in the first document below ("Limited Parking"):

*Limited Parking
Municipal Parking
Resident Parking
Double Parking

A public hearing on the proposed local laws to implement the new parking plan will be held on February 4, 2019 at 7pm in Village Hall (Court Room). Anyone interested may speak during the public hearing or submit comments ahead of time. Please send comments to Village Administrator Lawrence Schopfer at 85 Main St, Irvington, NY 10533 or by email to
