Please keep floats out of the traffic lane while parked on Wyatt Ave and use extreme caution.
*Generally speaking as the streets are not true north and south.
On June 6, 2016, the Lincoln City Council approved ordinance #2016–851 amending section 9-7-4 of the City Code, Downtown Parking Regulations within the City of Lincoln. The purpose of this ordinance was to help facilitate customer parking by allowing customers to park on the streets in front of businesses and to help with patrons to the government buildings find convenient parking for the in and out transactions.
Recently the Street Department erected new signage in the downtown area marking those areas designated for customer parking only between the hours of 9AM and 5PM. The Police Department will now start to enforce those areas designated by the attached map. Violations can be reported to the police department at 217-732-2151.
The Lincoln Police Department and City of Lincoln is teaming with Nixle to offer public safety announcements via cell phones and emails. With more and more people moving away from land line telephones, the reverse 911 system may not contact everyone. So we encourge users of cell phones to sign up with Nixle to receive notices from the City Fire and Police Departments.
You can sign up for Nixle on your cell phone or your email by visiting Nixle Website. Messages will be in a text format and you will not receive phone calls from the system. You will not be signed up to any advertisement systems by registering for this service.
You can also simply sign up by texting 62656 to 888777 on your mobile phone.
(You may opt out at any point by sending STOP to 888777)
