How to Park Legally

The best way to avoid a parking citation is to observe and follow all parking restrictions. Avoid parking in loading or tow zones; or in spaces with no parking signs or accessible reserved signs (unless you have a permit); or in front of hooded parking meters. Pay for your metered parking spot and move your car before the time limit expires. Additional regulations and city code are outlined on the City of Omaha website.

Parking Enterprise Fund
According to city law, it is illegal for the parking division to make a significant amount of money from parking rates. Instead of going into the City's General Fund, any profit from parking fees in City of Omaha owned and operated lots and/or garages is put into the Parking Enterprise Fund. This fund is designed to pay for improvements such as infrastructure, landscaping and streetscaping in the downtown area.
