Port Washington looks to give green light to alternate-side parking

MANHASSET - The Village of Port Washington is eyeing a new bill that would impose alternate-side parking regulations on a crowded residential street.

Homeowners on Jeannette Drive say that with a Long Island Rail Road station about a block away, commuters are using their street as a parking lot. They complain that so many cars pack both sides of the road that it becomes too narrow for more than one vehicle to pass through at a time.

Councilman Fred Pollack (D-North Hempstead) says he plans to introduce the bill, which will force more commuters to find parking elsewhere or get ticketed.

A public hearing to vote on the issue will be held July 12. Pollack says he's confident the bill will pass.
