Downtown Parking

Starting December 1, 2015, Parking Changes will go into place.

These changes are the result of a public process and much public comment, especially during the Downtown Plan and Parking Study public input sessions, and include:

On-Street Parking:

1.      2 hour timed parking on Main St from Front St to 6th St, and on cross streets from Main to 1st Ave E and W from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday.

2.      2 hour timed parking on Broadway from 1st Ave W to 3 Ave E from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday.

1.      3 hour timed parking on 1st Ave E and 1st Ave W from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday.

2.      Courtesy enforcement with no tickets until *two weeks from start of program* for on-street timed parking. (To be determined by City Commission)

Lot Parking:

3.    Eight 3 hour timed spaces in the parking lot behind American State Bank, the parking lot behind the Downtown Plaza, and the parking lot next to Select Ford from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday.

4.      The removal of any signs designating reserved parking in downtown public lots, and the voiding of any agreements regarding those spaces with the City or Parking Authority.

5.      Enforcement of overnight parking bans within the downtown public lots.

Residential Parking Program:

·        2 permits per person, with 4 permits maximum per dwelling unit

·        The first permit per person will cost $240 per year, with the second permit costing $300

o   If more permits per dwelling or person are necessary, an application may be brought before the Parking Authority.

·        Each permit will be assigned a specific color, which corresponds to the lots that the permit holder will be allowed to park in. This color is determined by the block the permit holder resides in.

·        Cars with residential overnight permits may park in their designated lots for up to 48 hours before being ticketed.

·        If a car will be parked in a lot for more than 48 hours due to the owner being out of town or incapacitated, the owner will need to inform the Williston Police Department at 701.577.1212.

·        In 2015, permits will be issued to begin on December 1, 2015, and will expire on June 30, 2016. At this point, all renewed permits will be for July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017.

-    If you or your tenants wish to purchase a new residential parking permit for Downtown for 2015-2016, please visit the Auditor’s Office at City Hall at 22 E Broadway by December 11, 2015.
