Town expected to vote on New Suffolk parking ban tonight

Southold Town is holding a second public hearing tonight regarding a proposed parking ban on Second Street in New Suffolk.

The draft law prohibits parking on both sides of the street from the southerly intersection at Main Street to the northerly intersection at Jackson Street.

Parking conditions on Second Street have caused undue congestion, restrictions on access and maneuverability as well as dangerous traffic impacts, according to the proposed bill.

The public will have a chance to weigh in on the idea during the Town Board’s regular meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the Town Hall Meeting Room.

The Town Board is expected to vote on the matter following the public hearing.
