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 to: 
  • Reduce traffic congestion from vehicles parked by persons not residing within a residential neighborhood; 
  • Protect residential neighborhoods from polluted air, excessive noise, and refuse caused by the entry of such vehicles; 
  • Protect residents of these residential neighborhoods from unreasonable burden in gaining access to their residences; 
  • Promote traffic safety and the safety of children and other pedestrians in these residential neighborhoods. 
The City of Dubuque Residential Parking Permit District ordinances can be found here.
