Enforcement was temporarily suspended due to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s COVID-19 stay-at-home orders
KALAMAZOO, Mich. – The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety Wednesday announced they have resumed street parking enforcement across the City of Kalamazoo. The announcement comes after parking enforcement was suspended in March 2020 when Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued the stay at home orders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Effective immediately, KDPS officers will resume enforcing City Ordinance 36-170, which prohibits vehicles from being parked on any city street between the hours of 2 and 6 a.m., unless otherwise allowed by the City of Kalamazoo’s traffic engineer.
Compliance with Ordinance 36-170 is critical during winter months, as it assists snow removal crews plow streets as needed. Illegally parked vehicles during times of heavy snowfall can impede the access of snowplows and emergency vehicles.
