Parking Regulations Return to Glens Falls January 1, 2023

City of Glens Falls

Since March of 2020, The City of Glens Falls had suspended parking regulations, but the City will again begin to enforce parking regulations on Sunday, January 1, 2023. To prepare visitors and residents alike, City Police Officers have been providing warning messages for cars that have been parked in any parking spot for too long – this method of warning people has been in effect since October of 2022. 

“No one likes to pay parking fines, and the City most certainly doesn’t like to issue parking tickets. 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” said Mayor Collins via press release. 

The parking spots in the Downtown District have a two-hour limit between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM, though those same spots are free from this restriction from 6:00 PM to 2:00 AM; however, there is currently no parking allowed on any street in the City of Glens Falls between 2:00 AM and 6:00 AM.

Here is a list of streets that will resume a two hour parking limit beginning January 1, 2023:

  • Glen Street from the bridge to Pine Street
  • Warren Street from Centennial Circle to Church Street. 
  • Ridge Street from Centennial Circle to Washington Street

The Common Council is doing a full assessment regarding parking issues and looking at parking needs throughout the City, addressing such needs as overnight parking, enforcement, parking downtown, parking lots, and parking permits; as the committee’s work progresses, the City will seek public comments on these 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.”
