The City of Minot has assumed management responsibility of the two downtown parking structures....

    MINOT, ND - The City of Minot has assumed management responsibility of the two downtown parking structures. City Manager Tom Barry say that this month, Cypress Development, LLC, the developer and former management company for the parking structures, turned over operations for the Central and Renaissance parking structures to the City.

    Barry says as part of the transition, the City invites the community to park in the structures free of charge for the next month. Current parking pass holders will be credited with one month of free parking, and the gates at both structures will remain open during the free month.

    "We're going to be making some adjustments as far as management of the structures goes," said City Manager Tom Barry. "We felt this was a great time to open up the gates and invite everyone to try them out for a month."

    Barry says the month of free parking will extend into May as the City makes operational adjustments. Among the adjustments, the City will conduct a structural and conditional assessment of the two structures, in addition to performing clean-up work and making security improvements. Both structures will also be restriped later this spring or summer. New signage will also be installed.

    For questions about parking passes, starting an account, or the billing process, please call 701-420-4533. For anyone on an automatic payment plan, please contact the City's Billing Office to redirect your payments to the City of Minot.

    For suggestions, concerns or complaints about the parking structures, please share your concerns with the City by visiting: http://www.minotnd.org/requesttracker.aspx

    In March, the City Council voted unanimously to begin steps to terminate all agreements with Cypress and initiate a lawsuit against Cypress over the developer's failure to make required lease payments to the City. Barry says the City remains committed to seeing the commercial and residential portions of the project completed, including the construction of low-to-moderate income housing units.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A 4-year-old Mandan girl in need of a double lung transplant has landed in Houston, Texas with her parents thanks to private donors.
