On-street ParkingStreet Parking

The City of Eau Claire has 130 on-street meters which are in effect between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., except holidays, at a rate of $0.25 per hour.  Holidays include:  New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Day, Presidents' Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve.  The City does not enforce parking meters or 2-hour parking on these holidays; all other parking restrictions are enforced.

All questions regarding parking restrictions should be referred to the Traffic Engineer, located in City Hall, phone 715-839-4934. A request for a change in parking status must be accompanied by a petition form signed by the property owners affected by the change. After the Traffic Engineer receives the petition, it is then considered by the Public Works Traffic Committee. The Traffic Committee reviews the request and after consideration may refer it to the City Council for action.

The Traffic Engineer is authorized to temporarily waive parking restrictions on public streets. Reasons for such waiver may include: repair, remodeling or construction of buildings where parking immediately adjacent to the job site is required; parking lot construction or repair; loading or unloading moving vans or trucks; or any other reason which in the judgment of the Traffic Engineer would require such waiver. Traffic flow, parking availability, pedestrian traffic and other pertinent factors will be taken into consideration before a decision is made to grant the waiver. No waiver shall exceed 3 months. A fee of $15.00 is charged for each parking waiver issued.
