From Snow Event Parking to Alternate Side Parking
City Council approves return to Alternate Side Parking
October 8, 2019
The City of Eau Claire City Council at the Tuesday, October 8, 2019 legislative meeting voted to approve an ordinance that will return the City of Eau Claire to “Alternate Side Parking” rules between November 1 and May 1.
Alternate Side night time parking restrictions will go into effect on all city streets on Friday, November 1, 2019 and continue through May 1, 2020. The restrictions apply between midnight and 7 a.m.
When parking a vehicle on the street, the date after midnight is used to determine the correct side:
- On odd-numbered dates, vehicles can only be parked, stopped or left standing on the side of the street having addresses that end in odd numbers (1, 3, 5, 7, etc.).
- On even-numbered dates, vehicles can only be parked, stopped or left standing on the side of the street having addresses that end in even numbers (0, 2, 4, 6, etc.).
- These rules do not replace more restrictive parking regulations in the city including any posted “No Parking” signs or in the event a Snow Emergency is declared. Meaning, if the street is posted as “No Parking”, then no parking is allowed regardless of whether Alternate Side Parking rules are in effect.
Please keep in mind that Alternate Side Parking regulations will be enforced in all areas of the city.
If issued a ticket; the cost of the citation is $30.
These regulations, in addition to snow removal, make it possible for the City to do street sweeping and other routine maintenance during the low traffic early morning hours.
