Temporary No Parking signs are issued for areas where there are no parking meters, for a number of purposes:

  • To accommodate large moving trucks, oversize vehicles and storage containers. 
  • To facilitate construction or other utility work on property, in the street or adjacent to the street.
  • To accommodate weddings or funerals.
Signs for weddings and funerals are provided at no charge per city ordinance.
  • To prohibit parking for block parties, races, or parades.
If No Parking signs are to be used as part of a block party, race, or parade, a Street Use Permit or Parade Permit must be obtained in advance. If construction is to occur, and depending on the type, a Street Occupancy Permit may be required.


To request Temporary No Parking Signs, call the Parking Division at (608) 266-4761.

  • Locations for signs are reviewed for each request.
  • Temporary No Parking Signs cost $2.00 per sign.
  • Signs must be posted by the purchaser, at a minimum of 48 hours in advance of occupancy for enforceability.
