Willmar, Minn., receives downtown parking survey


WILLMAR — A downtown parking survey presented Monday to the Willmar City Council discovered potential areas of concern that will need to be explored in greater detail.

An area of concern is when parking reaches a utilization rate of more than 85 percent. When this occurs, parking becomes a challenge within that area.

For instance, drivers will find themselves waiting longer periods of time for an available space and circulation within the parking area becomes a problem.
