Park Slope residents get a break from DOTPosted: Updated:
The Department of Transportation has temporarily suspended alternate side of the street parking in order to change the street sweeping signs.
Starting May 19 residents in Park Slope won?t have to worry about moving their cars to park on the correct side of the street. The area is the first of four areas in Brooklyn that will have its street sweeping times changed.
Community Board 6 District Manager Craig Hammerman says that the board has been fighting the Department of Sanitation to change the street sweeping signs since the mid-80s.
Alternate side of the street parking rules will resume once the signs have been changed.
