The Alternate Side Parking Ordinance aids the Public Works Department during a snow event.
Whenever the City declares a snow event to permit a full residential plow operation, then for a period of
72 hours, alternate side parking regulations will be in effect on all streets in the City of Eau Claire.
Regulations are as follows:
- On Odd-numbered days, vehicles shall only be parked, stopped or left standing on that side of the street having odd-numbered addresses.
- On even-numbered days, vehicles shall only be parked, stopped or left standing on the side of the street having even-numbered addresses.
- These provisions shall only be in effect between midnight and 5:00 p.m.
- These provisions shall not supersede more restrictive parking regulations in effect in the city.
- Notice of the snow event shall be provided at least 6 hours prior to the regulations taking effect, meaning notice must be provided prior to 6 p.m. in order for alternate side parking to commence that night at 12:00 midnight. Notice shall be given to the public and all interested media outlets on the following sites:
