Parking regulations to resume in full within the City of Glens Falls

GLENS FALLS, NY (December 27, 2022) – For the first time since the pandemic started in March 2020, the City of Glens Falls will again be enforcing the parking regulations within the City beginning this Sunday (January 1, 2023).  To prepare our residents, workers and visitors for this, City Police Officers have been providing warning messages since October on cars that were parked too long in any one spot.

“No one likes to pay parking fines and the City most certainly doesn’t like to issue parking tickets,” said Mayor S. William Collins.  “But with business being back to normal, the City needs to ensure that our downtown businesses have spaces available for their customers to park while they shop as well as for visitors who come to the City for any events.”

As a reminder, on-the-road parking spots in the Downtown District generally have a two (2) hour limit from 9am to 6pm.  Those same spots are free from 6pm to 2am.  Please remember, there is currently no parking on any street in the City of Glens Falls between 2am and 6am.

This is the list of streets that will resume a two (2) hour parking limit beginning January 1:

  • Glen Street from the Bridge to Pine Street
  • Warren Street from Centennial Circle to Church Street
  • Ridge Street from Centennial Circle to Washington Street
  • Bay Street from Glen Street to Washington Street
  • Pine Street from Glen Street to Elm Street
  • South Street from Glen Street to Pine Street
  • Hudson Avenue from Centennial Circle to Pine Street
  • Park Street from Glen Street to School Street
  • Civic Center Plaza from Glen Street to Warren Street
  • Maple Street from Bay Street to Church Street
  • Clinton Avenue from Elm Street to School Street
  • Exchange Street from Elm Street to the end
  • Lapham Place from Glen Street to Ridge Street
  • Elm Street Parking Lot
  • Ridge Street Parking Lot
  • Warren Street Parking Lot
  • Exchange Street Parking Lot

“We understand that parking is a significant concern for our downtown workers, business owners, residents and visitors/shoppers,” said Collins.  “That’s why I commissioned a downtown parking utilization study last Summer which we will receive very shortly.  And the Common Council’s Special Projects Committee is looking at the parking issue wholistically.”

The Committee is looking at parking needs throughout the City to move forward and beyond including overnight parking, enforcement (ticketing), parking downtown, parking lots, parking permits, needs for additional parking, and a city-wide parking app.  As the committee’s work progresses, the City will seek public comment on all those issues.

Collins continued, “I offer my thanks to all of our residents as we restart our parking enforcement program to keep Glens Falls moving forward.”
