New law aimed at parking problems
(Page 3 of 3)
Donovan Berthoud/Herald
Second Street, on the south side of Hempstead Turnpike, is a common parking area for NUMC visitors.
In May, Arthur Gianelli, president and CEO of the NuHealth System, wrote a letter to McKevitt in support of the bill. In response to its passage, Gianelli said, “The East Meadow community is to be congratulated for its grass-roots effort to secure legislation allowing residential permitted parking … This legislation should help manage longstanding parking challenges in the area around the hospital.”

As for the next steps in the process, Hudes said that town officials were “moving expeditiously” to adopt an ordinance, and that a notice of a public hearing would be added to the town’s calendar. Residents can attend the next board meeting, on Sept. 3, to voice their opinions.

East Meadow residents, Hudes added, “didn’t deserve what they’re dealing with. And at least there’s a light on the horizon. It’s just a matter of working out the details.”
