[ARCHIVED] Village Board to take closer look at parking policy decision

parking

During the Village Board meeting on September 21, the Board voted to reconsider the parking policy decisions made at the previous September 8 meeting. The Village Board will reconsider the policy decision on parking at their October 5 meeting.

The Village Board wants to take a second look at the parking policy decision before proceeding because of the wide variety of impacts for Shorewood neighborhoods, especially during the winter months or days with trash/leaf collection.

Here are details of the original decision that the Village Board will be reconsidering:
  • Allow for the purchase of a monthly On-Street Overnight Parking Permit to park vehicles on Village streets Monday through Friday. 
  • Weekends and holidays will remain exempted from permit requirements. 
  • The cost of this permit was approved at $40 per month. 
  • Permits will be limited to two per household unit and will be unlimited for commercial businesses whose late-night/early-morning employees may require the permit. 
  • Alternate-side parking will be enforced on weekdays, requiring cars to be parked from 3:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. on the oddly-addressed side of the street on odd calendar days and the evenly-addressed side on even calendar days. 
  • The monthly price of an Off-Street Overnight Parking Permit to park in one of the Village’s public or private contracted lots was reduced from $50 to $30. 
  • Monthly Off-Street Daytime Parking Permits were also reduced to $30, and the price of a 24-hour Off-Street Parking Permit was modified to be $50 per month. 
  • No changes were made to the On-Street Overnight Temporary Parking Permissions program, which currently allows vehicles 20 free overnight permissions within the calendar year.

If you have any questions about the upcoming parking discussion on October 5, please reach out to Village Manager Rebecca Ewald at 414.847.2701 or via email at rewald@villageofshorewood.org. The Village encourages you to review the Village Board materials from the September 8 meeting starting on page 37 that goes into further description about the parking policy discussion.
