Parking Limits: Parking along the Hudson Ave/Main Street corridor is limited to two hours and there is no overnight parking allowed on either street.
Overnight Parking: is allowed in the Depot Square parking area near the Herrington’s warehouse and in the small lot south of the Kinderhook Bank. Overnight parking is also allowed on the following streets: Cemetery Hill (south-east side, from the cemetery entrance to Maiden Lane), High Street (the east side, from Line Street to Austerlitz Street), Kinderhook Street (north side, from Central Square to Shore Road), Library Place (east side), Maiden Lane (north-east side) and Woodbridge Avenue (west side, from Hoffman Street to Church Street).
CSX Parking Lot Behind Main Street: As you can tell, the Village of Chatham and the Town of Ghent recently worked on improving this area. The area is now smoothly graded and should be easier for more cars to park in. We hope that you all will take advantage of this much improved parking area! Cars should pull in head first, towards the railroad ties that are lined up and facing the railroad tracks. Eventually, we may begin to charge for parking here, because we do have to plow snow, maintain the area, etc.
Snow Emergencies: Current Village law says there shall be no parking on any street from November 15 through April 15. Snow emergency signs will be posted by the Department of Public Works and will be enforced.
Parking Permits: Parking permits for the municipal lot on Main Street are available from the Village Clerk’s office, and cost $25 per month. If you would like more information, please contact Village Clerk Kathy Burke.
If you have any questions, please contact: Village Clerk Barbara Henry or Chatham Police Chief Peter Volkman at 518-392-3451.
