Neighborhood parking permits pitched for medical corridor

Council Member Darius G. Pridgen today will introduce a measure calling for the city to study and implement a system of neighborhood parking permits around the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

The city lawmaker, whose district includes the Fruit Belt neighborhood adjacent to the medical campus, said he has heard from residents who have had trouble finding parking spots near their homes due to those working at and visiting the campus.

Pridgen's resolution also states the Council will pursue state legislation allowing the neighborhood parking permit system.

Here's a copy of Pridgen's resolution.
