District 10 is looking at ways to deal with the pressures that the State Fair and other major events put on parking on our streets. On Monday, June 25, we’ll have two similar meetings to explore challenges in different parts of the neighborhood. We'll share ideas, collect your thoughts, gauge your level of support (or opposition), and find out what other information you need to know before we make any decisions.

Parking Pressure Meeting: North
This meeting focuses on streets between Hamline on the west, Larpenteur on the north, Victoria on the east, and Arlington on the south. Specifically, we’re looking for resident feedback on two ideas:

  • Whether it makes sense to expand the number of streets on which parking is restricted to one side during the State Fair.
  • Whether it makes sense to expand the parking overlay district during the State Fair, so more residents can park cars on their front lawns.

This meeting is June 25 from 6-7 p.m. in the Fireside Room at Como Park Lutheran Church, 1376 Hoyt.

Parking Pressure Meeting: South
This second meeting on the same night focuses on streets south of the lake and east of Lexington. This meeting has three main topics:

  • Whether to expand the number of streets on which parking is restricted to one side during the State Fair.
  • A request by some residents to allow lawn parking during the annual Hmong Freedom Festival.
  • Unveil a plan for new lane configurations on Lexington Parkway, primarily for northbound traffic from Orchard to the Horton/Como intersection.

This second meeting is June 25 beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the back room at Gabe’s by the Park, 991 Lexington Parkway.
