WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - New parking rules will go into effect in downtown Williston next month.

The Williston Herald reports that authorities will give residents a two-week grace period starting May 1 to allow drivers to adjust to the changes. The city’s parking authority will issue warnings instead of tickets during that period.

Parking in downtown Williston will remain free under the new regulations, but 90-minute and 3-hour spots will be set up on some streets.

City Planner Rachel Ressler says the changes are meant to “get the right people parking in the right places.”

Williston officials hired a consulting firm that studied the turnover and occupancy rates in downtown lots and on the streets. They also surveyed 1,000 people and received 400 responses with recommendations on how to improve parking in the city.
