North Point Parking Lot

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The North Point Parking Lot serves Bradford Beach, the Northpoint Concession Stand (Moosa's), and the Lakefront. The pavement for the parking lot is in poor condition, and the storm sewer system has collapsed in several locations causing localized flooding during wet weather. Additionally, like many lakefront assets, the parking lot has experienced damage as a result of historically high Lake Michigan water levels and wave action, and the shoreline has been impacted by repeated and increasingly severe storms.

This project will result in designs for parking lot reconstruction. The project will include improvements for parking lot circulation, replacement of pavement, shoreline protection, storm water management including green infrastructure, lighting upgrades, and other utility replacements.

Construction Update

Michels Corp has started construction the week of March 24th. The entire parking lot will be closed until May 3rd, which helps to move the project along more quickly. After May 3rd the lot will then be partially open until the end of the project on July 19th.

I'd love some bike parking on the North end of the lot. The spots by MooSa might as well not exist for anyone not going there. Imagine yourself riding a bike Northbound. You don't see either rack because they are both blocked by trees and the building and then have to continue to park in the pavilion, which never has enough bike parking, so you have to cobble your bike against the fence or drag it up to the upper level of the pavilion there and lock it up there and walking all the way back to where your friends were at the south end of the beach.

In contrast, you can fit 12 bikes in a single one of these parking spaces. Put some here, put some further North too. The county is better off making more space efficient parking for the area.

Also, why is it the parks business to be making huge parking lots? Parking is always going to be a pain here and anyone who knows the area knows to park up top and walk down after a certain time. For the majority of the day during the majority of the year (fall-through-spring), this parking lot is genuinely 80% empty. Lean into that and make the lot half the size. You're not upsetting expectations because people already are going to have to walk for the entire summer this is getting fixed. Use the remaining budget to do actual park things, not building private car storage.

Make biking and bike parking at the lakefront easier and safer instead of making it more dangerous and increasing the amount of car parking spots. Why are there more dangerous mountable curbs than bike racks in this plan? Is your priority making it harder to be safe in our parks or the opposite?
