  • 4" RULE
Certain residential streets are posted "No Parking When Snow Falls 4 Inches or More." Parking is allowed on both sides of the street, except when snow has accumulated on the street surface to the depth of 4 inches or more. Then no parking is allowed on the side of the street where the sign is posted until the snow has been removed--day or night or at any time of the year. To determine whether this regulation applies to a specific street go to Street Parking Regulations.
Certain residential streets are restricted to parking on a specific side of the street during the winter months. These streets are posted with signs reading "No Parking" on one side of the street, either for the entire December 1 to March 1 period, or with a monthly alternation of the prohibited side. To determine whether this regulation applies to a specific street go to Street Parking Regulations.
If a snow emergency has been declared, night parking regulations are in effect from 11:00 P.M. to 6:00 A.M. on all city streets regardless of the winter parking regulation.
A "Snow Emergency" is declared to exist whenever snow falls during any period of 24 hours or less to a depth which is determined and declared by the Commissioner of Public Works to constitute a serious public hazard impairing transportation, the movement of food and fuel supplies, medical care, fire, health, and police protection, and other vital facilities of the City. Such an emergency is declared to continue for a period of 72 hours or until such earlier times as snow plowing operations have been declared completed by the Commissioner of Public Works. "Snow Emergencies" are widely publicized on local radio and television stations. In addition, "Temporary No Parking Tow Away" signs may be posted by the City to assist in clean-up after major snowfalls. Vehicles parked in violation of "Snow Route Tow-Away Zone" and "Temporary No Parking Tow Away" signs or obstructing traffic during a "Snow Emergency" will be towed away at owner's expense. There are no exceptions.
Milwaukee Public Schools makes some of its playgrounds and parking lots available for overnight parking during declared snow emergencies and clean-up periods. Take a look at Snow Emergency, Off-Street Parking on School Playgrounds List. Call the Department of Public Works Information Center at (414) 286-8282 during regular business hours for the location of a playground nearest your home.

 District Three and the Faith Based Community

Community Outreach Program

The Milwaukee Police Department (District 3), with direction from last year's Ceasefire Summit, believe we've found an ideal way for our faith based organizations to become more directly involved with the community we both serve. After many hours of planning, we realized that the most reasonable avenue to address the issues and concerns which hamper our community, is at the ground level. This would begin with our community schools, which have direct non-feathered contact with youth. The goal is to have our representatives (Community Outreach Specialists) work within confines of the schools to mentor and provide direction and insight into what is expected of members of our community. The mission of this effort, as previously stated, is to provide moral and spirtiual guidance to the youth of our community. This shall be done with the help of clergy members, professionals and other community leaders volunteering their time.
