While the City of Marinette continues to grow so does the problem of parking on certain city streets. At this week’s Civic Affairs, Cemetery, Traffic and Lights Committee meeting the committee discussed the 1400 block of Newberry Avenue and the risks the parking poses on pedestrian and thru traffic. Committee Chair Debbie Klegin says, “what are some ideas or proposals to try and open the street up for the homeowners.”

Mayor Steve Genisot says, “there is already parking on one side of the street.”

While no action was taken, the committee has decided to bring back for further discussion regarding the parking issues on Newberry Avenue.
