Effective immediately, the City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works has suspended all timed, metered and night parking restrictions to accommodate residents who are home due to COVID-19. Vehicles will not be required to alternate side-park or have night parking permits.

Vehicles must abide by all other parking regulations, including posted “NO PARKING” signs. Parking Enforcement will focus on safety-related violations including unauthorized parking in a handicapped space, obstructing traffic/bicycle/streetcar lanes, and parking too close to an alley/driveway/fire hydrant/crosswalk.

Additionally, No Parking in a Loading Zone (including Carryout Zones) will be actively enforced. Per Wisconsin statute, a vehicle must be attended while actively loading/unloading so that it may promptly be moved in case of an emergency or to avoid obstruction of traffic.

General information

The Garden District Neighborhood Association (GDNA) is an ‘all-volunteer’ organization dedicated to serving and improving the quality of life for those who live in the 13th Aldermanic District of the City of Milwaukee. Our main objective is to enhance the quality of life for residents and neighbors through community beautification and sustainable landscape design. In partnership with the Gateway to Milwaukee Business Improvement District, the University of Wisconsin Extension, Marquette University, the City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Energy Exchange, Inc., and other nonprofit organizations, GDNA volunteers have embarked on several ambitious neighborhood projects that limit stormwater discharge into our creeks and replenish groundwater. The most heralded of these is the establishment of the three-mile-long ‘6th street Green Corridor’ where bioswales with native plantings have been constructed to capture thousands of gallons of stormwater that would otherwise end up in the Wilson Park Creek, a tributary of the Kinnickinnic River. Other notable projects include our annual landscape design awards for residents and businesses in the Garden District; the creation of an active community garden where neighbors rent plots to grow vegetables; and this year’s ‘soft-opening’ of a 66-space Farmer’s Market to provide fresh, locally grown produce to our neighbors and our yearly Garden District Days Festival.

For anyone who votes at Water Tower, be very careful walking on the sidewalks leading up to the building. They are glare ice… I did let the workers on the 1st floor know about this, and they didn't seem too concerned. I also posted it on Scott Spikers page in hopes that something will be done. I saw 4 people slip and almost fall as I was writing the post to our alderman.
Thank you to the people or persons who decorated the garden area. My girls enjoyed the displayed
