[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Kendall 5-8-1986 by L.L. No. 2-1986. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Legislature of the State of New York has authorized, pursuant to the provisions of the Town Law and the Vehicle and Traffic Law of the State of New York as they pertain to regulation of traffic by the Towns, the legislative body of the Town to adopt a local law regulating the use of the highways of the Town and more particularly, to limit the stopping, standing, or parking of motor or other vehicles thereon in order to promote the general health, welfare and safety of the citizenry of the municipality.
The Town Board of the Town of Kendall, Orleans County, New York, being the local legislative body empowered to enact such local laws as maybe necessary to protect the general welfare of the Town, has determined upon its own investigation that it is necessary to limit the stopping, standing or parking of motor or other vehicles with the general vicinity of the so-called Four Corners in the Hamlet of Kendall for the following reasons:
A. 
To provide a clear, unobstructed view of traffic approaching the intersection of Kendall Road and Kenmore Road;
B. 
To promote and encourage patronage of established businesses by providing regulated parking in the general business district of the Hamlet of Kendall;
C. 
To facilitate the Town Highway Department in snow removal during the winter months which otherwise would accumulate and create a hazard to pedestrians and vehicle traffic in the general vicinity of the Four Corners.
