On-Street Parking Restrictions

The City of Appleton recently considered a proposal to restrict on-street parking to two hours during business hours in the neighborhoods surrounding the Lawrence University campus. This proposal came out of a 2014 downtown parking study conducted by the City and a parking consultant. Following review of the proposal as well as a neighborhood meeting hosted by the City and Lawrence, the City of Appleton has decided not to proceed with the proposed restrictions at this time.

Instead, there will be minor changes in policy on streets on the southeast corner of the campus – near Trever Hall and also on Rankin Street between Alton Street and College Avenue. The total impact is expected to be fewer than 12 parking spaces.

In light of this new development, the University has decided not to proceed with further expansion of parking facilities north of Plantz Hall at this time. While parking continues to be limited for the campus as a whole, there are more critical areas of need for our constrained capital resources. Should available parking for the University significantly change in the future, plans for additional capacity will be revisited.  If you have any questions please contact Jon Meyer or Jake Woodford.

As always, please take note of any posted parking restrictions around the campus and remember that on-street parking is prohibited in the City of Appleton between the hours of 2:00 am and 5:00 am.
