FAIR LAWN – In an effort to promote business near the Broadway train station, the Borough Council reduced parking requirements for certain establishments within a quarter mile of the commuter line that connects Port Jervis to Hoboken.

The station, between Midland Avenue and East 54th Street on Route 4/Broadway, is one of two train stations in the borough. The other is located in Radburn.

Specifically, the council voted unanimously to reduce off-street parking requirements on Aug. 15, affecting banks, childcare centers, combined use buildings, residential dwellings, houses of worship, car dealerships, offices, restaurants and other retail establishments, among other businesses in the B-2 Zone along Broadway.

The quarter-mile limitation means it does not affect the entire length of Route 4 which extends approximately 11 miles from Paterson through Paramus to the George Washington Bridge.

The idea is to take the train so less vehicle parking is necessary, according to prior work session comments from the council.
