The Quogue Village Board passed a slew of parking restrictions for Jessup Avenue, Quogue Street and Village Lane at Friday’s monthly meeting.
The regulations were brought up in April because of the possibility of an overflow of commuters picking up the Hampton Jitney in the village since the bus company’s stop at Gabreski Airport is being relocated to the Casa Basso Restaurant on Montauk Highway in Westhampton due to ongoing construction at the Westhampton airport. The new rules limit parking for non-residents and residents, but give Quogue residents a little more leeway.
In the village parking lot on Quogue Street, next to Village Hall, parking is limited to seven nights for residents, employees, volunteer firefighters and hotel guests. Non-residents can park overnight for up to two nights on Quogue Street but cannot park overnight in the village lot.
On Jessup Avenue, three different restrictions are now in place. On both sides of the street from the corner of Village Lane to its termination at Montauk Highway, there will be two-hour parking from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. daily. Parking on the east side of the street north from Village Lane will have a 15-minute limit from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. every day.
Parking on Quogue Street will be allowed only on the north side of the street. From Jessup Avenue east, one-hour parking restrictions will be in place from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. daily. West of Jessup Avenue on the north side of Quogue Street, parking is allowed for two-hour blocks from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. every day.
One-hour parking on the south side of Village Lane is limited from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and restricts parking the area west of Jessup Avenue. The restrictions will be lifted for all other hours.
All parking restrictions will be posted on signs. Mayor Peter Sartorius said, as of right now, he does not plan on issuing resident stickers. Quogue Village Police will be responsible for issuing warnings and, if necessary, tickets to offenders, according to village officials.
