A. 
Parking near Newburgh Free Academy.
(1) 
Legislative findings. The City Council of the City of Newburgh, New York, hereby finds that an automobile parking problem exists in the City streets and school parking lots in the area surrounding Newburgh Free Academy. This problem is created by the large number of automobiles parked by students in the parking lot on Gidney Avenue and on these streets and the congregation of students around the parked cars, thereby causing traffic congestion, lack of street parking space for local residents, noise caused by loud music coming from car radios, garbage and litter, and trespass on private property. It is further found that these are problems affecting the health, safety and welfare of the people of this City. This section is intended to remedy these problems by creating an orderly and equitable parting plan for the affected streets and parking lots and to enforce parking regulations on certain school district properties upon request of the school district or other schools as may be in the best interests of the City of Newburgh.
(2) 
Unless otherwise provided in this section, no person shall park a vehicle between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon of any day, except Saturdays, Sundays and school holidays, upon any of the streets or parts of streets described in Schedule XXIV (§ 288-82), attached to and made a part of this chapter.
(3) 
Exceptions; parking permits for residents. Parking shall be permitted on the streets mentioned in Schedule XXIV (§ 288-82) hereof by residents of the named streets, except for the parts of the streets designated in Subsection C, which parking areas are reserved for certain students of Newburgh Free Academy. A parking permit, as provided by this section, must always be displayed on the dashboard of a vehicle parked on these streets during the designated times. These permits will be issued by the City Clerk upon such reasonable proof as she may require as to the residence and the number of cars owned or used by the applicants. Mid-Hudson Counseling Center shall be allowed a permit for each of its staff members and a maximum of six additional permits. The Christ Lutheran Church of Newburgh shall be issued a reasonable number of permits for use of the staff and members of its congregation.

Student parking areas. The parking lots, streets or parts of streets described in Schedule XXV (§ 288-83), attached to and made a part of this chapter, are reserved for students of Newburgh Free Academy having a parking permit visibly displayed inside the windshield. These permits shall be issued by the principal of Newburgh Free Academy to those students who, in his judgment, are most in need of a parking permit because of employment, for medical reasons or for other hardship. He may require an affidavit or other evidence from a student applicant for a parking permit as to the facts that the student claims entitle him to the permit.

Parking near St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital.
(1) 
Legislative findings. The City Council of the City of Newburgh, New York, here by finds that an automobile parking problem exists on Dubois Street in the area of St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital. The problem is created by the large amount of growth and development along Dubois Street, which is causing traffic congestion and a lack of street parking space for local residents. It is further found that these are problems affecting the health, safety and welfare of the people in this City. This section is part of a larger plan intended to remedy these problems creating an orderly and equitable parking plan for Dubois Street as may be in the best interests of the City of Newburgh.
(2) 
No person shall park a vehicle at any time of any day upon the west side of Dubois Street between Carter Street and Third Street, except by residents of Dubois Street who display a proper permit on their vehicle(s). Such parking permits shall be displayed at all times a vehicle is parking on Dubois Street.

One permit shall be issued for each vehicle owned or used by a resident of Dubois Street.
C. 
Service or delivery vehicles. The parking prohibitions of this section shall not apply to service or delivery vehicles which are being used to provide services or to make deliveries to residents.
D. 
Other parking regulations. This section is not intended to supersede the alternate-side-of-the-street ordinance now in effect or any other ordinances restricting parking on the streets designated herein.
E. 
Validity of permit; misuse unlawful; term. Whenever the conditions entitling a person to a parking permit under this section no longer exist, the person holding such a permit shall surrender it to the issuing authority or its authorized representative. It shall be unlawful for any person to represent that he is entitled to such a permit when he is not so entitled, to fail to surrender a permit to which he is no longer entitled or to park a vehicle displaying such a permit at any time when the holder of such permit is not entitled to hold it. No permit issued hereunder shall be valid for more than one year but may be renewed upon expiration, provided that the conditions for issuance exist.
