In 2019, the East Lansing City Council approved a pilot on-street parking program, which was implemented through three traffic control orders (TCO). The TCOs resulted in changes to on-street parking regulations in designated areas of some East Lansing neighborhoods. The on-street parking changes were implemented in summer 2019.
The purpose of the pilot program is to limit on-street parking in areas where roadways are too narrow for safe, two-way vehicular travel. The regulations also accommodate City services, such as curbside trash/recycling collection and snow plowing, as well as the travel of emergency vehicles.
