DCA Amends Rules for Parking Licences

Posted on March 23, 2018

Currently, in order to have a Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) license issued or renewed for the operation of a parking garage or lot a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) must be presented to the commissioner and such CO must list the approved number of vehicle spaces permitted in the garage or lot, pursuant to 6 RCNY § 2-161(a & b).

On April 18, 2018, 6 RCNY § 2-161(a & b) shall be amended to allow for applicants of the DCA license to self-certify that the proposed premises comply with all applicable local, state and federal laws and regulations, instead of presenting a CO. The number of vehicles shall be determined by either: 1) what the premises has previously been licensed for; or 2) In the case of newly licensed premises or premises seeking to increase the number of spaces, the applicant must submit documents to show the maximum vehicle capacity allowed by local, state or federal laws and regulations, as applicable. In either case, it must be certified, that the maximum vehicle capacity complies with such laws and regulations.
