The Racine Common Council Tuesday will consider assigning to a committee a request to extend the deadline for overnight parking downtown by an hour, from 2 a.m. to 3 a.m.
Implementing the change could make a big difference in the safety of both patrons and bar staff, according to the Racine Tavern League.
Currently, alternate parking restrictions go into effect at 2 a.m.; drivers must park on the odd side of the street on oddly numbered days and on the even side of the street on even numbered days except on weekends during warm weather and every day between Nov. 1 and March 1 of every year.
If the matter is assigned to the Public Works and Services Committee, it could appear on the June 14 agenda. That committee meets at 5:30 p.m. on second and fourth Tuesdays of the month in Room 303 at City Hall, 730 Washington Avenue.
