The City recently completed its Downtown Parking Study to address current and future parking demands in downtown Lakeville. The final report will include strategies to meet the needs of a variety of parking users and our downtown businesses. A major outcome of the study is a concept plan for improving the accessibility and aesthetics of the “west” city-owned parking lot at the southwest corner of 209th Street and Howland Avenue. The proposed plan includes a new trailhead, improved sidewalks, crosswalks and pedestrian-scaled landscaping and lighting - all aimed at making the west lot feel like it’s part of downtown. A new wayfinding plan was also prepared to help improve signage to more effectively direct visitors to the available downtown public parking lots.
