Parking signs appear out of nowhere
These signs went up on 3 blocks around Richmond Hill High School in Richmond Hill Queens without notice yesterday afternoon. Previously, you just couldn’t park in front of the school doors on school days. Yesterday, new parking restrictions were posted saying parking was permitted only with Dept of Ed permits during school days from 7 – 4 taking away a lot of the community’s parking. I already had been parking 1 block away from home due to competition for parking from multiple family homes and apartment buildings. Yesterday, disabled son in tow, I parked 2 blocks away (and I was probably the first to spot the signs). Who knows how far away I will have to park the next time? My neighbors and I take the train to work so we need places to park a car for 24 hour stretches and this takes 40-50 of those spots away. How can they do this without notice to the community? It’s a hardship to the community!
I sent this to Ruben Wills aide since the school is within his bounds as is an apartment building nearby. My side of the street across from the apartment was carved off into Karen Koslowitz’s district Eric Ulrich’s also has some of the impacted nearby community.
Did these signs go up elsewhere in Queens, too?
