AIRMONT, N.Y. - The Airmont Board of Trustees will continue their hearing on a proposed code that would change the overnight parking regulations in the village.
More than 100 village residents turned up at village hall on Monday night to speak against the code change, which would alter the definition of overnight parking, according to Mayor Phil Gigante.
Currently what is considered overnight parking occurs between the hours of 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. and is prohibited from November through April. The proposed code would change the time to 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. and would prohibit overnight parking year round.
Many in attendance said the regulations were targeting the religious members of the community, something Gigante dismissed on Tuesday.
Due to the large number of residents that showed up, holding the meeting was in violation of the fire code because the number of people in attendance exceeded the room's capacity, Gigante said.
Gigante is hopeful of scheduling a meeting to discuss the code in the next two weeks at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in order to accommodate the number of people expected to attend.
A separate meeting will likely be held next week to take a vote on whether a "do not knock" registry should be established, he said.
