CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) - A city councilman’s proposal seeks to establish handicapped-accessible on-street parking in Cranston.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1Pcxg1X ) an ordinance proposed by Councilman Steven Stycos, a Ward 1 Democrat, would create a system where residents holding a Rhode Island handicapped-accessible parking placard could apply for a permit to designate on-street space as handicapped-accessible parking.

The proposal states that Cranston would install signs creating the handicapped-accessible spaces, although anyone with the state’s placard will be permitted to park there - not just the person who obtained a city permit.

The ordinance stipulates no permits would be issued where “adequate handicapped-accessible off-street parking is available.”

City Council’s Ordinance Committee submitted the proposal for approval by the full council on Thursday.
