Buffalo changes parking rules in Elmwood Village to add 1,000 spots

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Residents and Elmwood Village enthusiasts will be forced to adjust to new traffic patterns in the beloved north Buffalo community.

City crews installed new signage to detail an expanded area for parking, allowing parking on both sides of the street in warmer months, with the goal of creating 1,000 new spots for parking.

“As the area continues to grow in popularity, limited access to parking has become a common complaint from visitors and a quality of life issue for residents,” Carly Battin, executive director for the Elmwood Village Association, said.

Starting on April 2, residents and visitors will be able to park on both sides of the following streets all day long:

  1. Bidwell Parkway
  2. Chapin Parkway
  3. Auburn Avenue — From Elmwood to Richmond
  4. Breckenridge Street — From Elmwood to Richmond
  5. Ashland Avenue
  6. Norwood Avenue
  7. Forest Avenue — From Elmwood to Richmond
  8. St. James Place
  9. Bird Avenue — From Richmond to Windsor
  10. Potomac Avenue — From Elmwood to Richmond
  11. Hodge Avenue — From Elmwood to Ashland
  12. Anderson Place — From Elmwood to Atlantic
  13. Dorchester Road
  14. Granger Place
  15. Claremont Avenue
  16. Inwood Place
  17. Oakland Place — 500 feet beyond Summer Street only

The move to expand parking follows a successful 2013 pilot program that allowed parking on both sides of certain streets in the summer months. The above streets will support parking on both sides of the street from April 2 through Nov. 14.
