Analysis

This ordinance specifies the regulations governing municipal off-street parking lots and provides the commissioner of public works with the ability to change parking regulations based on geographical areas’ particular parking needs and conditions.

 

Body

Whereas, The City of Milwaukee manages over 40 surface parking lots and needs consistent regulations that govern both parking lots and on-street parking; and

 

Whereas, Consistent regulation ensures that the public can better understand parking policies, including night parking permit requirements, and avoid unnecessary tickets; and

 

Whereas, Under new parking regulations, signage could be updated with a link to a website whereby drivers can apply for night parking permits; now, therefore

 

The Mayor and Common Council of the City of Milwaukee do ordain as follows:

 

Part 1. Section 101-33-4 of the code is recreated to read:

 

101-33. Parking Lot and Off-Street Parking Regulations.

 

4. TO ERECT SIGNS. The commissioner of public works is directed to erect and maintain, on any municipal off-street parking lot, appropriate signs indicating the limitations or restrictions on parking provided in the resolution or ordinance for such lot, including signs designating particular parking spaces for snow storage or electric vehicle parking. A vehicle may be parked in a municipal lot from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. provided that the vehicle owner has obtained a night parking permit as governed by s. 101-27-5. A vehicle may not remain in the same parking space for more than 24 hours, unless permitted via a lease. A vehicle in excess of 3 tons is prohibited from standing, stopping or parking in a municipal off-street parking lot. A vehicle may not be parked in a lot unless the vehicle displays the required registration per Wisconsin state statute.

 

Part 2. Section 101-33-4.5 of the code is created to read:

 

4.5. COMMISSIONER AUTHORITY. The commissioner of public works may change permissible parking hours, metered parking restrictions, and time restricted parking for specific parking lots based on the parking needs and conditions of particular geographic areas.
