Lanesboro City Council Report

“There is no parking problem”By John TorgrimsonMonday, August 13, 2001

The Lanesboro City Council sports one of the “coolest” government meeting rooms in all of Fillmore County. By cool, I am referring to the ambient temperature in the room and not the style of decor, which dates back to the “cold war” civil defense era of interior design.

While the air temperature outside last Monday evening hovered in the mid-90’s and the tarmac on Parkway was sending shimmering waves of heat skyward, the city council met in the chilly confines of city hall. By chilly I am likening the experience to being parked next to the celery and the lettuce in the ice box.

The committee sent out a survey to residents asking them to comment on specific parking problems they have within one block of their home. Of 58 respondents, 37 (64%) responded that they had no problem.

A similar questionnaire was sent to business owners asking if they had received any complaints from customers or employees about parking. Of 15 respondents, 12 (80%) said that there were no complaints.

A number of comments and suggestions were made by residents and business owners ranging from limiting parking on Parkway and Coffee Streets to one hour parking to asking employees of businesses to park behind stores or at the Bass Pond. A number of respondents felt that what parking problem there is in the city was a local one, as parking congestion is mainly limited to the post office and grocery story.

Cropp said that two of three canoe outfitters met with the committee and that they .....
