Residential Parking Permit District (RPPD)


In October 1985, the Dubuque City Council adopted Ordinance
9-14-321.720 establishing a residential parking permit program for Dubuque citizens. This program was enacted for the following reasons:

To reduce traffic congestion from vehicles parked by persons not residing within a residential neighborhood;

To protect residential neighborhoods from polluted air, excessive noise, and refuse caused by the entry of such vehicles;

To protect residents of these residential neighborhoods from unreasonable burden in gaining access to their residences;

To promote traffic safety and the safety of children and other pedestrians in these residential neighborhoods.
