As a courtesy to residents, the Park District issues one parking window decal per resident household at no cost. If needed, a second permit may be purchased for $12. In order to obtain a parking window decal, a Park District resident must have a valid park card and present his/her vehicle’s DMV registration, showing his/her name and Park District address. IF YOU ARE NOT A RESIDENT or do not have a window decal on your car and you are parking in our commuter parking lots, you are in violation of our parking rules and risk receiving a costly parking ticket. We have increased our code enforcement staff to ensure that only park district residents have complete access to parking in our commuter lots. Please help us, help you. Parking window decals and daily, monthly and annual parking tickets can be obtained or purchased at Great Neck House, 14 Arrandale Avenue. Call (516) 482-0355 for further information.
FUTURE OF COMMUTER PARKING
The Park District operates three (3) commuter parking lots near the Long Island Railroad Station. The current demand often exceeds the capacity of these lots. Expansion of the Long Island Railroad to Grand Central Station as well as additional housing under construction within the Park District will increase this demand. The District is examining potential ways to increase the number of parking spaces.
The Commissioners, with the help of all Great Neck residents and Town and Village officials hope to find various alternatives which commuters might use to get to and from the train.
