Parking Ramp - May 28, 1970 –

I thought this might be an interesting story to rekindle based on the proposed parking ramps in Downtown Minot now in progress. On the front page of the newspaper on MAy 28,1970 was a story about the proposed parking ramp in Downtown Minot. This ramp was to be built in the ½ block just south of the old Midwest Federal Building or just west of what is now Wells Fargo Bank. Cost to build the ramp in 1970 was $1,600,000 – the ramp was never built as some of the commitments for leasing parking in the ramp did not materialize…. also in the news was the announcement of the store manager for the new Kmart Store being built at the intersection of Highway 83 South and the 2&52 Bypass. The store was scheduled to open on July 9, 1970 – the first store manager was Roger Atkinson – The Kmart store is still in this location ……
