Windsor Terrace and Sunset Park will be the first two beneficiaries of the law passed by the City Council in April that allows community boards to request a reduction in street cleaning to one day per week--if a community keeps its streets clean for two consecutive years and gets a ninety percent cleanliness grade. A reduction in street cleaning means that fewer alternate-side-of-the-street parking days are needed. The new law doesn't apply to metered streets or to streets that are cleaned between midnight and 6:00 a.m.
