Parking Enforcement Reestablished During Pandemic In Ypsilanti

City of Ypsilanti
New parking kiosk in Ypsilanti.

As of Monday, parking enforcement is active again in the City of Ypsilanti.  

It’s the first time that parking regulations have been enforced, since mid-March when the city stopped many of its in-person operations because of COVID-19.  Drivers who fail to follow parking time-limits or parking signage guidelines in general will be ticketed.  Bonnie Wessler is a project manager for the city and says, as of now, enforcement will not take place in certain parts of Depot Town where new parking kiosks will be installed.       

Bonnie Wessler: We’re still getting signage up and meters up for the new rollout, so I don’t anticipate those will be taking effect until August, September.

However, Wessler says the area directly in front of the food co-op in Depot Town will continue to be enforced since no changes will take place there.
