Due to a relatively mild winter, an early spring, and good long-range forecast, Community Services Director Renee Tyler, in accordance with authority granted by the City code of ordinances, has issued an order suspending Alternate Side Parking restrictions in the City of Eau Claire effective today through May 1, 2021.  Parking will now be permitted on both sides of the street until November 1, 2021, except in those locations where permanent or temporary parking restrictions are posted or marked. 

The City has historically used the parking restrictions in late winter and early spring to conduct an extensive city-wide street clearing operation to remove debris from roadsides and gutters, preventing it from entering our storm drains and polluting our rivers. The mild weather has also allowed these operations to be concluded earlier in the season than usual. Normal street sweeping will continue through the summer and into fall.
