The Estherville City Council moved forward with an ordinance setting a no parking zone on the first block of North 17th Street on the east side.
The area affects two-three parking space areas on that street from Central Avenue to First Avenue North.
City officials said vehicles that park in the area create a narrow space, especially for traffic to and from school.
The council waived the three readings and moved for the ordinance's adoption.
In other business Monday, council adopted the 2015 Capital Improvement Program for the Estherville airport.
The project for next spring is a new apron. The fuel facilities also will be upgraded.
Plans for 2016 are to update the Master Plan since it was last updated in 1998.
