Garage Parking Permit Information
Employers and employees who work within the Village of Great Neck Plaza are eligible and are encouraged to obtain a quarterly Commercial Parking Permit in one of the Village’s municipal garages and the Atria Great Neck permit spaces. These Commercial Parking Permits are priced to be cheaper than the daily parking meter rates and thus, are incentivized so that workers in the Village park appropriately in the designated long-term garage parking areas. This is intended to allow the municipal parking lots closer to the retail stores to have turnover and be available for our shoppers and visitors. For workers that are less than full-time, we also have available pro-rated Commercial Parking Permits based on the number of days you work, e.g. one to three days. However, your schedule must be for specific days, (for example, Mon., Wed., Fri.) which will be indicated on your permit. Commercial Parking Permits are required to produce proof of employment by your employer.
Residents of multiple dwellings in the Village of Great Neck Plaza are eligible to receive a Residential Parking Permit in one of our municipal garages, one per household, on a limited basis. To obtain a parking garage permit you will be required to complete the proper garage parking application and attach a copy of your current driver's license and current vehicle registration. Residents will also be required to produce two forms of proof of residency.
Cost: Currently Commercial and Residential Parking Permits $90.00 per quarter (3 months).
In addition to quarterly parking permits, the Village has created eight (8) long-term parking meters on the rooftop of the Plaza Centre Garage on Gussack Plaza. These permits are useful to those businesses who hire seasonal or part-time employees for their “crunch” work periods within the Village of Great Neck Plaza, such as the holidays, or tax season, etc. Please come in to Village Hall during permit hours (see below) to purchase a $5 parking permit. You will then be able to park at one of the 10-hour meters but you will have to deposit quarters into the meters for the amount of time that you want to park.
When space permits, the Village may also issue Commuter Parking Permits, on a first-come, first-serve basis, for residents of the Great Neck Peninsula that commute via public transportation (LIRR) to New York City. There are only a limited number of Commuter Parking Permits available, quarter to quarter, and these spaces are designated on the rooftop of the Plaza Center Garage. The number of commuter spaces is subject to change, depending on the season, and weather conditions. Also, the number fluctuates depending on the availability of Commercial Parking Permits sold. To obtain a parking garage permit you will be required to complete the proper garage parking application and attach a copy of your current driver's license and current vehicle registration. Renewals of commuter permits are not guaranteed and can only be done in person at Village Hall starting the 20th of the month (or alternate date if the 20th falls on a weekend) prior to the start of the quarter. Commuter parking permits are issued on a first-come, first-serve basis and once filled unserved persons will be placed on a waiting list.
Cost: Currently $210.00 per quarter (3 months)
