Superior’s Public Works Committee is recommending changes to the rules on Wisconsin Point in response changes taking place there.

As part of the dune restoration project, the number of areas where people are able to park is being reduced.

It’s created an issue with people parking their cars on Wisconsin Point Road, said Public Works Director Todd Janigo.

Currently, temporary no parking signs remind drivers they shouldn’t park there. However, that hasn’t resolved the issue.

Janigo suggested the committee consider revising the ordinance governing Wisconsin Point to restrict parking to designated parking areas only.

That would eliminate the need to have no parking signs along Wisconsin Point Road, Janigo said.

The committee approved amending the ordinance to restrict parking to the parking areas that are being created.

While the dune restoration project is removing 15-16 small parking areas along the point, when the project is complete later this summer, 177 parking spots are expected to be created.

The ordinance change goes to the City Council for consideration Aug. 6.
