BELLMORE - Long Island Rail Road commuters say they are fed up with ongoing parking issues at the Bellmore station. The station currently has about 2,000 parking spaces, but many say it isn't enough. Town of Hempstead residents are calling for more reserved parking spaces, but non-town residents say they are entitled to spots as well. The Town of Hempstead owns close to 1,400 spaces in the lot, and says it is looking into creating permit-parking spots. However, the town says it can't commit to anything right now.
