Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder is asking Con Edison to allow access to a vacant property adjacent to M.S. 137 to provide much additional parking for educators and school activities in Ozone Park.

Updated Friday, May 16 1:42 p.m.

A vacant lot in Ozone Park that has sat fallow for several years should be converted into a parking lot for teachers at a nearby middle school, an elected official said.

Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder has asked Con Edison to allow teachers and parents from M.S. 137 to park in the lot across 98th Street from the school.

The extra parking space would do more than just make parking convenient for teachers and parents, Goldfeder said.

“Allowing access to the vacant lot for parking will help encourage parents to be more involved in student activities with their children,” Goldfeder said. “Every organization has a responsibility to the communities they are located in and a small gesture from ConEd will go a long way in easing parking congestion for residents of Ozone Park and parents visiting the school.”

Parents complain that the area is severely congested and “parking is often difficult,” Goldfeder said in a letter to ConEd.

“The vacant lot would be the perfect solution to the longtime issue of parking in the area for homeowners and allow the school extra space to host special events.”

For their part, ConEd will respond to Goldfeder’s request after the company considers the matter.

” We will review it and respond to him. We are also reaching out to him to discuss the matter,” spokesman Allan Drury said.
