30 Minute Parking – 1959
on September 18, 1959, all parking in Downtown Minot was to become 30 minutes per the ordinance passed by the City Council. The reduced parking was proposed by the Minot Chamber of Commerce and backed by 90% of the business owners in Downtown Minot. The 30 minute ordinance would be enforced after all the signs were installed in the affected area. It should be noted that in 1959 there were no Shopping Centers in Minot. Most of the business was in Downtown Minot or along Highway 83 North and South. Highway 83 is now Broadway.
