City of Milwaukee Rolls Out Restaurant Carryout Zones
Program will help restaurants better accommodate customers
Following the State of Wisconsin restricting restaurant service to delivery and carry-out only due to COVID-19, the City of Milwaukee is initiating a program intended to make it safe and convenient for customers to pick-up orders from restaurants.
To assist restaurants that currently do not have a “Loading Zone” adjacent to their business, the City has implemented a temporary program to provide “Restaurant Carryout Zones”.
“As restaurants face uncertain times, this program is a way we can support those small businesses trying to better accommodate their customers,” said Mayor Tom Barrett.
The program is 100% free to City of Milwaukee restaurateurs who currently do not have a “Loading Zone” adjacent to their business. The Department of Public Works program provides parking signage and the equivalent of two parking spots near their location.
“While we will evaluate this program in the coming weeks, we anticipate continuing this for as long as the ‘No Dine In’ policy is in effect,” said Commissioner of Public Works Jeff Polenske.
Restaurants can apply for this program online at milwaukee.gov/dpw and signage will be installed by DPW within 48 to 72 hours of the request.
