Airmont Tables Action On Proposed Parking Ban

RAMAPO, N.Y. -- A proposal to expand an overnight parking ban was tabled this week in Airmont after it sparked pushback from members of the Jewish community, according to a report by lohud.com.

The village, which already prohibits all-night parking on its streets between midnight and 6 a.m. from November to April, was weighing a plan to ban such parking from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. the entire year for safety and other reasons, lohud.com reported.

One local rabbi, protesting that the move would adversely affect Jewish residents who can’t use their cars on the Sabbath, asked trustees to study the matter further, the lohud.com article said.

Also attending the meeting in Suffern on Tuesday night were pro-ban residents who pointed to traffic congestion and safety issues such as access for emergency vehicles, lohud.com reported.

It was not known Wednesday if the village intends to take up the matter again anytime soon.
