There is welcome news today for Buffalo residents who rely on on-street parking.
Mayor Byron Brown has lifted the city's winter parking restrictions, which are normally in effect until April 1. The move could become official as soon as tomorrow if the Common Council approves the suspension in special session, which is expected.
"We believe we do not need, for the remainder of the year, these overnight parking restrictions. We want to add to the convenience of parking for residents in the City of Buffalo," said Brown.
