On a recent visit to a downtown Milwaukee area shopping center, I saw a sign that read “You can’t get out of this.”
The message, I learned, was that if you’re not getting out of your vehicle at all, there’s nothing you can do about it.
A new sign was placed over the top, explaining that the city’s rubber stepping stone ban is an enforcement measure and that it’s a safety measure, not an environmental issue.
The sign had the word “no” and the words “ROCK THE GROUND” written in big letters.
The city’s decision to ban rubber stepping rocks was the product of a conversation with city officials that began in February with city Attorney General Brad Schimel, according to a memo from City Manager Dan Schulz.
At that time, Schimels had decided to get serious about cracking down on illegal parking.
Schimelman and his team worked with a team of environmental attorneys to craft the new parking enforcement plan.
The new enforcement plan called for installing a new sign in each parking lot at the end of each block, but the city also announced plans to remove a parking meter that was already installed in front of a parking garage, according in a memo to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The signs would have been installed at intersections.
They would also have read: “You are not permitted to park in the center of a plaza, sidewalk, or crosswalk in the City of Milwaukee, except for vehicles on foot or in wheelchairs or other mobility aids.”
The new signs would also require all vehicles to stop at all times, and the city said it would be adding a warning sign on the back of the signs to inform people that they were violating the rules.
The proposed signs, which are slated to be installed by the end in late June, are aimed at people who park in a spot that isn’t marked by a meter and who have no way of knowing whether it’s safe or not.
They also are meant to discourage people from going out in their vehicles.
The idea behind these signs is to put a “wall of green” between motorists and pedestrians.
According to the memo, the new signs also could encourage people to use more bicycle lanes and other pedestrian-friendly streets.
But some residents are concerned about the impact the new signage will have on their communities.
The newly installed signs were designed by a design firm in Washington, D.C., which was hired by the city, the Milwaukee Business Journal reported.
The firm was hired to develop a design that would allow for the city to build new signs in front and back of commercial businesses, including bars and restaurants.
“The new signs will not help with traffic congestion in the downtown area,” according to the Business Journal article.
The Milwaukee Business Tribune reported in April that the sign proposal was “lobbying” by the National Restaurant Association and the Restaurant Association of America.
“We think it’s going to make Milwaukee look more like a Third World city,” said Michael Kinsley, president of the Restaurant Industry Council of Wisconsin.
“It’s not what we want to see, so it’s not something we are going to support.
The restaurant industry wants to see a more pedestrian-centric city.”
But Schimela’s administration is hoping the signs will help with the issue of illegal parking, according a memo dated July 6 that the Milwaukee City Council approved.
Schulz told the Journal Sentinel that he wants to continue to address the issue, adding that the new enforcement measures will also help with enforcement of the parking code.
But the city is now going to take some action to address this issue, he said.
The memo from the city of Milwaukee says that the signs, if approved, would be installed between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., and the signs would be “designed to prevent motorists from using the sidewalks to park and/or walk.”
The city said the signs are designed to prevent the “unintentional use of the sidewalk” and that they are also intended to deter drivers from parking illegally on the sidewalk.
The City of Madison is also considering installing signs at all of its intersections, according the memo from Schulz’s office.
In addition, the city will remove the existing signs from a portion of its downtown area, the memo says.
Schulzes office said the new fines and penalties would be in place for a maximum of 90 days.
“Our goal is to eliminate illegal parking in our downtown core by 2019,” the memo reads.
“In addition, our goal is that we reduce our overall impact by enforcing our parking regulations in a way that makes sense for everyone and that allows us to keep our downtown area vibrant and open to the public.”
Milwaukee, for its part, has no plans to change the signs.
“Milwaukee has always been a city that celebrates and respects our shared values and history,” city Mayor Tom Barrett said in a statement.
“As the new Mayor of Milwaukee takes office in 2019, we will continue to work
