Alternative Side Parking Rules Resumes In Mount Vernon

And don't forget to check out the Face Mask Giveaway

Black Westchester has received a lot of calls and emails asking us what the status of the alternate side parking rules is in Mount Vernon. Alternative side parking rules were suspended because of Governor Cuomo’s “New York State on PAUSE” executive order, a 10-point policy to assure uniform safety for everyone, which required non-essential businesses to close and many who were still working to work at home.

We reached out to Mayor Shawyn Patterson-Howard to get clarity on the subject. She informed Black Westchester that parking meters and alternate side parking rules will resume, Tuesday, May 26, 2020. For those of you with parking permits, they must be renewed on Monday, June 1st.

Please act accordingly, move your car before 9 AM and share this with your neighbors so they do not get tickets, and street-sweepers can resume cleaning the streets of Mount Vernon.

The Mount Vernon City Council passed parking reform legislation, Wednesday, May 22, 2019 designed to reduce rush-hour congestion and to increase the quality of life by extending alternate side parking deadlines to 9:00 A.M.  The legislation passed by a vote of 4-to-1, in the second regularly scheduled City Council Meeting in the month of May 2019.

  1. says move cars by 9am. Trying to set up drivers for a ticket? Cars need to be moved by 8am on alt days. Nice try slick

    • Sorry Mark you are mistaken. While all the signs may not have been changed (although they all should have by now) the time was changed to 9 AM last year. The city council passed it when Richard Thomas was in office and all the signs didn’t get changed until the few months Andre Wallace was mayor. The picture above is from across the street from my house. So it is you who is incorrect SLICK!

  2. For anyone else who has any questions, I added a link to the parking reform legislation that the city council passed on May 22, 2019.
