July 2023 Update
Here is the June 2023 update on downtown parking plan progress.
6th Street Windsor Lake Corridor On-Street Parking - This has been completed. Staff identified and designated on-street space throughout the 6th Street Windsor Lake corridor between Main St. and Cedar Street. Parallel spaces were designated in locations adjacent to residential access. New angled on-street public parking spaces were added elsewhere.
Ash Street Parking Lot & 106 6th Street Lot - In September 2022, the Town of Windsor closed on two properties: one on Ash Street located directly north and adjacent to Main Street businesses; and a property at 106-6th Street which is located across the street from the American Legion. Both properties are slated for future parking.
Boardwalk Park Museum Lot - The construction of this lot was delayed after an issue with an underground utility line required engineering to reconsider property grading. The timing for construction of this lot is yet to be determined. When construction proceeds, this project includes improvements at the Boardwalk Park 5th Street entrance where accessible spaces will be created.
Windsor Lake Birch Street Lot - This improvement was completed in Spring 2023 with minor adjustments.
Downtown Business Shared Use Lots - Paving is completed for the lot located on the south side of Main Street in the 400 block. To the benefit of businesses, the Town of Windsor would help with operating and maintaining the shared-use lots, taking that burden off of property owners. To the benefit of the town, visitors could access and utilize dedicated free public parking spaces, conveniently located on the south side of Main St. This effort supports the adopted Downtown Parking Plan by providing improved and dispersed parking throughout the downtown corridor to the benefit of all downtown businesses.
