End the Ban on Overnight Parking in White Plains

260 Signatures Goal: 250

The citizens of White Plains ask Mayor Roach to end the ban on overnight parking for one year as a test. The streets are public byways that the taxes of White Plains residents pay for, yet they are unable to park their cars on the street overnight. The city is making a large revenue from the ban, but we ask the city to look at the comfort and living situation of its residents and determine that money is not everything. In addition Mayor Roach claims that on street parking is dangerous. And instead wants to charge his constituents to park in private parking lots with dim lighting, no windows in the stairways and that are at least half a mile from the apartment buildings. The ban was enacted in 1947 when White Plains was a small town (not a city) and homes had 1 car. Back then husbands worked & mothers stayed home. Sixty years later this has changed & a majority of homes are 2 car families with both spouses working. The law is antiquated and now is affecting the property value within the town. Homes, apartments and condominiums do not sell unless they come with a parking space. Meanwhile private contractors are making money by offering the only parking in the city (municipal lots are up to a 2 year wait). Parking on the streets should not be a money maker for the city or for it's chosen few "friends". We ask for a basic right to park in front of our homes.

    I really believe this needs to be lifted. I have family who want to visit and there is no where for them to park. If they want to have no parking overnight in mid-town white plains fine, but on the side streets of your neighborhood, you should be able to park freely. This is completely unfair and a way for the city to just get more money.
