Emergency No Parking


Emergency No Parking Signs are issued to residents and businesses for the purpose of reserving on-street parking spaces, when off-street parking or loading spaces are not large enough.  All requests are reviewed and considered.  APD reserves the right to deny or request modification of all requests.  

To apply for an Emergency No Parking Sign please call 518-434-5791. An online application and payment portal is currently under construction and will be available soon.
