Changes Made to Alternate Side Parking

Local News

It’s official, changes are coming to Eau Claire’s winter parking ordinance. The measure was passed by the Eau Claire city council earlier this evening in a 7 to 2 vote. Starting November 1st, which is this Sunday, alternate side parking will only be in effect when there’s a full residential plow operation. The alternate parking lasts for 72 hours from midnight to 5 pm each of the three days. Previously, vehicles had to park on alternate sides of the street every night from November 1st to May 1st.

Phil Fieber: “This we think will give us much more time to be able to do some plowing during the day, which will actually improve the amount of parking spaces in a lot of these residential streets.”

City of Eau Claire public works director Phil Fieber says there will be at least six hours notice before alternate parking takes effect.
