July 2022 Update
After two years of data collection, input gathering, and draft proposals, Windsor’s Town Board approved the Downtown Parking Study on Monday, July 11, 2022, and prior to its adoption, staff began actively working to identify and improve downtown public parking.
The first part of this on-going effort looks at the area north of Main St. and west of Windsor Lake.
Here are some highlights:
- The Town of Windsor finalizes the purchase of property at 106 N. 6th St. on Thurs., Sept. 1, and on the lot located between 501 and 517 Ash Street on Fri., Sept. 30. Both will become dedicated public parking.
- Existing roadside parking will be restriped to the west of Windsor Lake, on both Birch St. and 6th St. Parallel parking will be on roads adjacent to homes and angled parking added where having more parking will not impact homeowner access.
- There are improvements coming to Boardwalk Park parking! The Boardwalk Park 5th St. roundabout entrance by the Farmer’s Market Pavilion is being redesignated to create more accessible parking for persons with disabilities.
- Windsor is looking into expanding the existing parking lot adjacent to the Windsor-Severance Fire Museum.
- The main Windsor Lake public lot on Birch St. can expand without impeding existing recreational space.
Meanwhile, Windsor’s Town Board, along with Town Manager Shane Hale and town staff, continue to look at improving downtown parking options to the benefit of all downtown businesses.
