Last March, the city of Milwaukee halted many of its parking restrictions as businesses shut down and people were staying at home. The city then brought back metered parking enforcement in June, but they’ve announced this week that overnight street parking and opposite side of street parking for leaf removal would start being enforced starting TODAY.
Here's the full press release from the city:
City of Milwaukee Reinstating All Parking Enforcement September 14
On March 19, 2020, the City of Milwaukee suspended all timed, metered, day and night parking restrictions to
accommodate residents who were home due to COVID-19 and businesses pausing operations. As businesses
began reopening, the need for turnover in parking locations increased and on June 15, 2020, the City of
Milwaukee Department of Public Works reinstated parking meter enforcement.
As college campuses resume in-person classes, parking will become more in-demand in certain areas. And with
upcoming fall leaf collection, alternate side parking will be necessary for safe and effective service. Therefore,
DPW will resume all parking enforcement on September 14, 2020. All vehicles will need a permit to park
during the overnight hours between 2 a.m. - 6 a.m., and must also park within the posted time restrictions
with limited exceptions.*
To allow the public time to get acclimated to resumed enforcement and acquire appropriate night/daytime
permits warning notifications will be placed on violating vehicles as of September 3, 2020.
Please note, the Milwaukee Police Department no longer issues daytime permits. If you meet the requirements
and qualify for a daytime permit, they are available at any of the City of Milwaukee Violation Bureau Payment
