[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Cornwall 3-9-1987 by L.L. No. 1-1987. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Vehicles and traffic — See Ch. 143.
Towing of vehicles — See Ch. 147.
The Town Board of the Town of Cornwall has determined that during the evening hours there are large numbers of people attending meetings, judicial functions, using the library and transacting town business at Town Hall, 183 Main Street, Cornwall, New York, as well as an increasing number of people using the town recreation facilities located adjacent to the Town Hall building. This increase in activity at Town Hall has resulted in a parking problem so that there is not always adequate parking available for those persons because many of the parking spaces are occupied by vehicles whose drivers are not participating in any of the foregoing activities at the Town Hall or the adjacent grounds. The Town Board has determined that the hours of peak participation in those activities are between 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., Monday through Sunday evenings inclusive. Based upon those legislative findings and determinations, the Town Board enacts this chapter.
As used in this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
- The Town of Cornwall, Orange County, New York.
- TOWN BOARD
- The Town Board of the Town of Cornwall, Orange County, New York.
- TOWN HALL
- The Cornwall Town Hall, 183 Main Street, Cornwall, Orange County, New York.
- TOWN HALL PARKING LOT
- The Town Hall parking lot at the Town Hall, 183 Main Street, Cornwall, Orange County, New York.
No motor vehicle shall be parked at the Town Hall parking lot between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., Monday through Sunday evenings inclusive, unless the driver and/or the passengers are at Town Hall to participate in an official town activity as hereinafter defined. An official town activity shall include one or more of the following activities taking place either within Town Hall or at the Town Hall recreation facilities adjacent to Town Hall: meetings of all official boards or bodies of the Town of Cornwall or any other meeting held at Town Hall with permission of the Town Board; use of the Cornwall Public Library; attendance at Town of Cornwall Justice Court; meeting with any government official; use of the town recreation facilities adjacent to Town Hall, limited to the basketball court, the tennis courts and the swimming pool.
