Overnight street parking will be allowed in Forest Lake for over half of the year after the city council voted on Monday to change the parking ordinance.
Parking will now be allowed on city streets at any hour from April 15-Nov. 1. On-street parking will remain restricted during the hours of 2-6 a.m. during the rest of the year.
At no point in the year, including the summer, will vehicles be allowed to occupy the same spot on a street for more than 24 hours. RVs will continue to be restricted from on-street parking at any time.
The measure passed by a 3-1 vote with Susan Young in opposition.
