Description

A house (624-28 Bainbridge) that already has 4 interior parking spaces built an addition (622 Bainbridge) and added a fifth. The Streets Department granted a curb cut, but #622 was never re-zoned to authorize the changed use. The owner has pursued his curb cut despite clearly articulated neighborhood opposition and the reality of the need for public parking so close to South Street. It is a case of public good versus private entitlement. When the property owner tried to get the curb cut in 2009, it was stopped and neighbors unanimously petitioned Councilman DiCicco to have a public hearing. That never happened, nor has there been a zoning hearing or notice. We have petitioned again, this time with more anger on our block than even before.
