PARKING RESTRICTIONS FOR TAYLOR LAKE BOAT LAUNCH
Beginning 9/8/20 parking will be prohibited on BOTH SIDES OF OTTER DRIVE. This was passed by the Town of Farmington on 7/20/20, Ordinance 7.20.2020c. If you have questions on this Ordinance, please contact one of the following Town of Farmington Board members: Caroline Murphy, Chair (715-513-0013 or 715-498-9820); Craig Nelson, Supervisor (715-281-9051); or Mark Jensen, Supervisor (715-281-6085).
The reason for restricting parking on Otter Drive was so that emergency vehicles would be able to pass down the road. The Farmington Town Board and the County Parks and Recreation Committee intend to meet in August to discuss ways to address the reduced parking opportunities that will result from enacting the ordinance change.
