CLINTON HILL — Parking meters are coming to Fulton Street.
“The meters at this location are part of DOT’s efforts to improve neighborhood parking conditions in retail districts across the city,” said a DOT spokesman.
The DOT said the new meters would provide consistency to the curbs on Fulton Street, which has metered parking both east and west of the Clinton Hill area.
The department also said the new meters would improve parking availability and customer turnover for businesses on Fulton Street.
The FAB Alliance said it has been asking the DOT to install the meters in the Clinton Hill section of Fulton Street since 2013 at the request of local businesses.
“I think too much of what happens is people park for days at a time,” said Phillip Kellogg, executive director of the FAB Alliance who said metered parking was better for business and more convenient for customers.
“More customers can shop at the small businesses on Fulton Street.”
The meters will be the same “Pay and Display” meters already in use on other sections of Fulton Street, the DOT said. Drivers can pay with cash, credit card or their NYC Parking Card, then display their receipt on the driver’s side dashboard.
Drivers will also be able to use Pay-by-Cell to pay for parking on their mobile phones.
It’ll cost 25 cents to park for 15 minutes, with a one-hour limit for each car.
The DOT did not say how much the project would cost or how many meters would be installed.
