Babylon Village trustees may ban parking on Pearsall Place.

Patients visiting nearby doctors' offices often use the block-long street for parking, impeding traffic, Mayor Ralph Scordino said at a village board work session Tuesday night.

"It's a very narrow street, and with people parking on both sides, school buses can't get down, fire trucks can't get down," he said.

The measure will likely receive a public hearing in coming weeks, Scordino said.
