CROWN POINT | Crown Point officials agreed to a parking ban on a portion of North Street near the Cal Ripkin youth baseball fields.
Street parking will be prohibited on both sides of North Street between Main and Hoffman streets, by approval of the city's Board of Public Works and Safety.
The ban will ease traffic flow and congestion in the area, officials said.
Nearby residents will be notified of the ban.
Off-street parking is available in the ball park complex, where 75 parking spaces were added in a recent round of improvements, officials said.
