BROOKLYN - City and state officials are considering a plan that would grant residential parking permits to some city residents who live in heavily congested areas. City officials heard testimony on parking problems from residents today. The bill still needs approval from the state Legislature.Some opponents of the plan say it would just drain money from residents. Money generated by the permits would be used to improve the MTA system. If passed, the permit program would be enacted in all five boroughs. Brooklyn officials say it's especially important because of the new Barclays Center that's due to open in 2012.
