Governor Hochul Signs Bill Enabling Expansion of Croton-on-Hudson’s Residential Parking System

New law gives the Village the ability to address congestion and trespassing concerns

Croton-On-Hudson, NY Senator Pete Harckham and Assemblywoman Dana Levenberg announced today that Governor Kathy Hochul has signed into law their bill enabling the expansion of Croton-on-Hudson’s residential parking permit system. The new law, S.5932/A.6570, adds several streets - Truesdale Drive, Nordica Drive, Cedar Lane and a portion of Old Post Road - to the system. The legislation allows the Village of Croton-on-Hudson to limit the ability of non-residents to park on these streets during specified times.

“This legislation will provide the Village Board with the flexibility to address quality of life issues that have arisen in a neighborhood that is experiencing increased traffic,” said Ann Gallelli, Deputy Mayor of the Village of Croton. “Thank you to Senator Harckham and Assemblywoman Levenberg for responding to the needs of Croton residents and working with us to get this bill passed.”

“Advocating for local communities in Albany is one of my chief responsibilities as a State Senator,” said Senator Harckham. “I'm proud this is one of several home rule bills that I sponsored at the request of our municipalities and which was passed by the State Legislature. I thank Governor Hochul for signing it into law. Empowering local governments to prudently manage parking issues is important to meeting the needs of residents and visitors to our communities.”

“Our area has so many beautiful amenities and attractions, and it is important to balance the needs of residents and visitors,” said Assemblywoman Levenberg. “Adding these streets to Croton’s residential parking system will help us establish a better balance.”

The new law took effect earlier this month, permitting the Village of Croton to move forward with the expansion of the parking system.
