The administration of West New York Mayor Gabriel Rodriguez ran on a platform which included providing the municipality with more parking. Despite the construction of a new parking garage on 51st Street nearing completion, resident Frank Miqueli believes more needs to be done.
Miqueli supports additional angled parking on certain streets in town and says an online survey shows the public agrees. He believes the administration is dragging its feet on the issue.
He says it’s been three years that the administration has been saying it needs to study the issue. Miqueli feels it’s time to act and create more spaces by angling them. He points to SS4A grants, Safe Streets and Roads for All, created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, as a way to help pay for new parking. The administration says all options for more parking are on the table and the construction of the new parking garage is just the first step.
