CROWN POINT - After many years of dealing with congestion and parking limitations downtown, the city of Crown Point is looking at ways to solve the problem.
The city is investing just under $60-thousand dollars into a parking study that is to result in a final design of new parking solutions, according to the "Times."
The Crown Point Board of Works on Wednesday unanimously approved an agreement with American Structurepoint, an engineering consulting firm, that will conduct the parking study.
Crown Point Mayor David Uran previously told the "Times" that the process will involve the community, staff and city council and will accommodate for future growth of the downtown, by making it more accessible to vehicles and pedestrians. He also says addressing the parking issue will
enable the business community to be successful and will spare residents and visitors from having to drive laps on the square in search of the perfect spot.
The total project is set to cost $59,900, which includes the parking study and contractual design.
The city of Crown Point City Council just established a parking committee in early May.
