WHEREAS, The Applicant, Mosdot Shuva Israel Synagogue, seeks the installation of a “No Parking Anytime” sign in front of the building’s entrance, which is located on the south side of East 58th Street, between Park and Lexington Avenues; and

WHEREAS, The “No Parking Anytime” zone would be the length of a single parking space and used for the purpose of facilitating pick-ups and drop-offs for the Applicant's synagogue services and educational programs; and
WHEREAS, The Applicant posted notices of the Application on the block and delivered notices of the Application to other businesses on the block, as requested by Community Board Five; and
WHEREAS, No significant objections were raised by members of the community at committee; and
WHEREAS, The only written response received by the Applicant was from a neighboring business which did not object to the Application; therefore be it
RESOLVED, Community Board Five finds no significant objection to the request for a “No Parking Anytime” sign at the entrance to 122 East 58th Street, being a single parking space in length, to be located on the south side of East 58th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues.
