S. 27th St. Construction Project Public Meeting
On Monday, March 3rd, Alderman Witkowski will join Alderman Dudzik, Rep. Josh Zepnick, Dan Zignego of the Zignego Company and Roger Reed who is the construction manager from the Department of Public Works at Pulaski High School (2500 W. Oklahoma Ave.) from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. to discuss the details of the S. 27th St. construction project from W. Howard Avenue to the bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad (500 feet north of Dakota St.). People attending the meeting are asked to use the front door entrance.
The meeting will provide details and the impact of the project on the surrounding community. People from the community will be able to attend and learn more about the project while being able to ask any questions that they may have.
The project will start on March 17, 2014 and is scheduled to be completed by November 15, 2014. The purpose of the project will be to replace the existing pavement with concrete pavement while widening the road by two feet in order to better accommodate bicycles. New curbs, gutters, driveway approaches, sidewalks, storm sewers, crosswalks, landscaping and traffic updates will be installed. The bridge over the Kinnickinnic River and the culvert under W. Loomis Rd. will also be repaired. W. Loomis Rd. will also be reconstructed from S. 27th St. to a point approximately 450 feet west of S. 27th St. with this project.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Cecilia Gilbert of the Department of Public Works at 414-286-3318.
New 2014 Virtual Night Parking Permit System
For the convenience of the city’s night parking permit customers, there will be no requirement to display a physical permit starting in 2014. When residents buy a night parking permit after December 20, 2013, they will complete the same application, accurately listing the applicable license plate number. Residents will receive a confirmation number to prove purchase of the permit, but will not receive a physical permit to place on the vehicle’s window.
The license plate number will be used by parking enforcement to determine whether the owner has purchased a valid permit. All customer service problems arising from misplaced or stolen permits will be eliminated. Failure to purchase a permit will still be subject to a $20 citation.
When a resident purchases a permit online, the cost savings derived from the elimination of permit production, handling and mailing costs will be passed on to customers. The convenience fee will be reduced from the current $2.25 to $1.00.
Visit www.milwaukee.gov/parking to purchase a night permit online and avoid the hassle of standing in line to pay in-person. Please call 286-CITY (2489) with any questions.
