The City of Wilmington announced that parking enforcement, to include parking meters and other limited-time regulations, which was largely suspended in March, will resume on Monday, July 13 in the Downtown and Riverfront Districts.

Parking Regulation Enforcement Officers (PREOs) will also continue issuing citations for other parking infractions such as blocking fire hydrants, intersections, and driveways.

The Mayor said residents who live Downtown and have been parking in metered spaces during the enforcement suspension can temporarily park-off street for free thanks to the generosity of Jed Hatfield, President of Colonial Parking, Inc. Residents should contact Colonial Parking at 302-651-3600 for more information about parking availabilities.

The following services and programs will continue to be suspended until further notice:

  • booting and towing of vehicles for delinquent fines and fees owned to the City
  • street cleaning so residents working from home do not have to move their vehicles
  • two-hour neighborhood parking restrictions because large numbers of residents are still working from home
  • Water utility service disconnections although residents and businesses are urged to make at least partial payments to prevent further delinquencies
  • Sheriff Sales

The City Finance Department reminds residents to renew their residential parking permits online and reminds businesses that net profits tax filings, originally due in January, are now due by July 15.
