WHEREAS, The applicant, Central Parking, operates an attended garage located at 125-131 West 58th Street; and
WHEREAS, The garage, comprised of approximately 64 parking spaces, is an accessory to an existing multiple dwelling; and

WHEREAS, The current extension of the term expired on May 14, 2004, and the Rules of Practice and Procedure of the Board of Standards and Appeals permit a renewal application to be timely made within two years of the expiration; and
WHEREAS, Community Board Five has consistently approved the variance and the extensions of term, and no complaints have been received concerning the garage; therefore be it
RESOLVED, That Community Board Five recommends approval of the waiver of the Rules of Practice and Procedure and extension of the term of the variance permitting continuing use of transient parking for the unused tenant spaces.
