Ur absolutely right eye of yac, why should I be restricted to park my car in front of my house 4x/wk ? The streets obviously don't get cleaned that often. As far as the downtown dining for the "uppity" crowd that thinks they should get a pat on the back for their patronage and feeding meters, they are a small percentage that make restaurant owners and servers cringe when they walk in and will Never be happy or content with anything anyway. IMHO

I like the Sunday pedistrian only walkway idea but hasn't the season passed to fully enjoy the perk of no cars....more area for outside dining, live music, etc ( I assume it would be much like when the street fairs hit)

Do you have a problem with paying for parking or with the muni-meters specifically? One of the reasons for meters in general is to turn over parking places so that the same place isn't occupied by one person all day. The muni-meters are used virtually everywhere -- the old-style aren't even made any more. Nyack and its shops are well-worth paying for parking for. So chances are, wherever you go where demand for parking exceeds supply, you're going to have to use a muni-meter.

That is simply not true. Village employees have Nyack parking permits, but it only permits them to park for free on the side of Village Hall or behind it. Those people are subject to Nyack's parking rules everywhere else in the village that they park, even if they are out on official business.
