Ready for parking

 

Lines have been painted and temporary parking is now allowed on the north side of the 16th Avenue South public access and boat ramp.  The measure is intended to provide much-needed parking for The Landing, owned by Gary and Diane Laabs.  The restaurant, which opened this summer, is part of the South Shore Inn, formerly known

 

 as The Heartland Inn.  Despite protests from residents of the Sweet Water Condominium, the City Council unanimously approved the designation of 14 parking spots on the north side of the access, with no parking between midnight and 5 a.m. Parking will only be allowed until Oct. 15, at which time the area will revert to no parking.  Council members said they will continue to work toward a long-term parking solution.-Reporter photo.
