Downtown Loading Zones

A common problem in US Cities, is the congestion. Cities were not designed a century ago for oversized vehicles. The challenge is to accommodate delivery/moving/construction vehicles while maintaining access for emergency vehicles (like fire trucks) thru streets, into alleys, and onto City Deck.

With the significant developments that have occurred in the North Washington Street corridor over the last several years, vehicular and pedestrian traffic have increased while available parking has decreased.  Delivery and moving vehicles, in particular, routinely block the streets in the North Washington corridor to the point where the streets are not passable and emergency access to the City Deck and adjacent alleys is not possible.

Parking Division realizes the challenges downtown businesses and residents have related to deliveries.  Parking would like to remind everyone the zones are signed and enforced for the safety of downtown residents, workers and guests. Parking strictly enforces the NO STOPPING/NO STANDING zones in the downtown area and encourages the distribution of this flyer and map to vendors.

To ensure safe passage in the downtown area for all pedestrians and vehicles, especially emergency response vehicles, please be advised of the following:

Delivery vehicles (whether personal or corporate) will be cited when found parking in these areas.


200 N Washington Alley (from Pine to Cherry) is posted NO STOPPING/NO STANDING

NO STOPPING/NO STANDING = no idling, no loading, no parking

Any vehicles found in either of the 2 will get a CITATION & WILL BE TOWED:

1. Attended OR unattended

2. Idling/loading/unloading


  • City Deck Court: NO PARKING zone on the south side of the street
  • 100 block Pine Street: NO STOPPING/NO STANDING zones on either side of the street;  blocking access to alley (this is a towable offense)
  • 100 block Cherry Street: NO STOPPING/NO STANDING zones on either side of the street;  blocking access to alley (this is a towable offense)
  • Blocking alleys for any length of time
  • North Washington Street: drive lanes or NO PARKING zones

Please notify your vendors and tenants of this requirement. Vendors may want to consider altering their delivery times to early morning hours when parking is more plentiful.
