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. The City’s goal has always been for parking enforcement to have a measured, phased back approach in alignment with businesses, health care centers and schools opening up which is why metered and timed regulations have since resumed.
Now as we welcome fall and eventually winter, it is a critical time of year for seasonal municipal services with night parking restrictions being a crucial component in this. Therefore, city-wide enforcement of night parking will resume November 2, 2020 meaning a permit is required to park on the street from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Saturday. Among these requirements is alternate side parking (except in certain areas), which allows access for municipal services operations such as street sweeping, leaf collections and snow removal.
To allow the public time to get acclimated to resumed enforcement and acquire appropriate night permits, warning notifications will be placed on those vehicles that would be in violation once the regulations resume on November 2, 2020.
Night parking permits are $55 annually, or $20 per 4 month period. Permits can be purchased at milwaukee.gov/parking or at any police district station. For detailed information go to milwaukee.gov/parking .
