[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Roslyn 3-18-2014 by L.L. No. 3-2014. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Valet parking shall be conditionally permitted, when authorized by the Board of Trustees, as an accessory use to any use permitted or conditionally permitted in the Village on the following conditions:
In addition to such other signs as may be permitted by the Village, additional temporary/portable signs stating "Valet Parking" and the name of the business may be erected at a location approved by the Board of Trustees of sufficient size to be visible from the street to the extent deemed by the Board of Trustees to be necessary to inform the public of the valet parking operation. Such temporary/portable signs shall be displayed and maintained on private property and shall not be placed in the public right-of-way. Such signs shall only be displayed during valet operation hours and shall be removed at the end of each day.
The stopping or standing of vehicles for pickup and for delivery, and the parking thereof, by the valet parkers shall be solely at locations which do not prohibit the stopping or standing of vehicles; do not unreasonably interfere with traffic; do not interfere with public parking areas; may not reserve public parking areas for valet parking; and do not unreasonably interfere with the peace and quiet of nearby property owners. The applicant shall submit a valet parking plan sufficiently describing the proposed valet operation.
Except to avoid an imminent accident or when directed by a police officer, under no circumstances shall a vehicle which is stopped, is standing or is otherwise being operated on the public streets of the Village for valet parking purposes which is being operated by or directed by the valet parkers or someone on behalf of the valet parkers or on behalf of the owner, operator, manager, or any other agent or employee of the principal use for which the valet parking is being provided, violate any of the provisions of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law or the ordinances or local laws of the Village of Roslyn.
The valet parkers shall at all times operate the vehicles which they are parking in a manner so as not to adversely affect nearby property owners. Valet parkers shall only operate valet vehicles to and from permitted valet parking locations. Accordingly, the valet parkers shall not permit the radios in the vehicles they are operating to be heard outside the vehicles; shall not operate the vehicles they are parking in such a manner as to cause their tires to "squeal" or make other noises by rapidly accelerating or decelerating, except to avoid an accident; and shall not sound their horn except to avoid an accident, and then only to the minimum extent necessary.
A conditional use permit for valet parking at a specific location may be issued for a period of one year and shall automatically expire at the end of said year unless renewed by the permittee, with the approval of the Board of Trustees, for another year.
Upon initial application for a valet parking permit pursuant to this chapter, and upon subsequent renewals of such permit, the applicant shall pay a fee to the Village as shall be set from time to time by resolution of the Board of Trustees.
Notwithstanding that an applicant has not received any summonses or been found guilty of any violations of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law or the Village's ordinances and local laws, the Board of Trustees shall not be precluded from denying a permit or a renewal of a permit if there is sufficient evidence for the Board of Trustees to believe that the applicant or the individuals who will be responsible for the business or the valet parking operations have not or will not comply with the conditions set forth in this section or with the laws, ordinances and regulations of the Village of Roslyn and/or the State of New York.
The violation of any provisions of this chapter shall be punishable as set forth in § 1-8 of this Code.
