[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Mount Kisco 1-4-2005 by L.L. No. 3-2005. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Vehicles and traffic — — See Ch. 101.
Pursuant to the powers conferred upon the Village Board of Trustees under § 1640-i of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law, the Village Board of Trustees finds and declares that many residential areas in the Village of Mount Kisco suffer from inadequate parking due to the parking of vehicles owned by non-area residents. Nonresidents who park in such areas include commuters who utilize the MTA railroad as well as employees and patrons of businesses located in commercial areas abutting the residential zones. The Village Board further finds that the lack of parking for residents of certain areas in the Village has resulted in traffic hazards, congestion and air and noise pollution. In addition, such lack of parking poses a hazard to residents and other pedestrians in such areas.
The Board of Trustees further finds that a residential parking permit system within such area will reduce such hazards and will reduce pollution levels as well. The Board of Trustees, therefore, hereby declares the necessity of adopting a residential parking permit system.
As used in this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
- AREA RESIDENT
- The residential owner or owners or residential tenant or tenants of or in a dwelling whose mailing address fronts upon a residential parking permit area.

No area resident shall give or sell a permit to another person or otherwise allow it to be placed on a vehicle other than the vehicles listed on the permit application.
