Chippewa Falls parking becoming a battle between store customers & employees

Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – Chippewa Falls officials are trying to figure out how to improve downtown parking, and they hope residents have some suggestions. 

Chippewa Falls City Planner Brad Hentschel said businesses and customers have complained about parking on the first two blocks of Bridge, Central and String Streets saying employees are taking up too many of the spots, leaving little parking for customers.

At a committee hearing Tuesday night, Hentschel expects to hear from business owners and get their side of the story.

"For a community our size, we generally have a lot of public parking available," Hentschel said. "It’s going to be getting people accustomed, and used to using the public parking that we do have, and then looking at some of the of the other options that we may be able to do for some of the on-street parking.

Hentschel said drivers can find public parking lots across from city hall and behind the library.
