City officials are considering possible changes to parking near Duluth's Denfeld High School.

An area between 42nd and 47th Ave W, from just north of Grand Avenue to 7th St, is permit parking only for residents five days a week. That roughly 20 block section surrounding Denfeld is restricted to students and visitors Monday through Friday during normal school hours. 

But a parking planner with the city says some residents that live in that zone say it is time for a change. 

"Folks in the area do have some opinions on whether the area should be kept the same as it is," said Mark Bauer, a parking operations specialist for the city of Duluth. "Some folks think that it should be reduced in size, and others think it should be eliminated. We're here to gather all that input, compile it, and give a recommendation on how to go forward.

Bauer said Monday's get-together was the only forum to be held on the topic. However, the Duluth Parking Commission will hold a public meeting on the topic in the near future.
