Department of Public Works to Relax Parking Enforcement

Focusing enforcement on safety-related violations

By - Mar 19th, 2020 05:08 pm

Effective immediately, the City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works has suspended all timed, metered and night parking restrictions to accommodate residents who are home due to COVID-19. Vehicles will not be required to alternate side-park or have night parking permits.

Vehicles must abide by all other parking regulations, including posted “NO PARKING” signs. Parking Enforcement will focus on safety-related violations including unauthorized parking in a handicapped space, obstructing traffic/bicycle/streetcar lanes, and parking too close to an alley/driveway/fire hydrant/crosswalk.

Additionally, No Parking in a Loading Zone (including Carryout Zones) will be actively enforced. Per Wisconsin statute, a vehicle must be attended while actively loading/unloading so that it may promptly be moved in case of an emergency or to avoid obstruction of traffic.
