"No Parking" Signs Cause Stir Downtown

Posted: Updated:

Some signs posted in downtown Bozeman caused quite the stir Tuesday.

"No parking today", signs went up Tuesday morning along downtown streets stating confusing many downtown patrons.

City officials said Ranch Exit Media obtained a permit to shoot a commercial downtown closing Main, Black, Tracy, Bozeman and Mendenhall streets between 5 and 8 a.m. Wednesday.

They say the permit holder is responsible for posting signs stating when the street will be closed 24 hours in advance.

The city removed those signs this evening, but local business owners say they already felt the impact.

"It's made things pretty difficult," said Cec Johnson, Millers Jewelry. "I feel bad for our customers because they're accustomed to being able to park in a convenient location downtown."

"We deeply apologize to the businesses and the downtown for the effects," said Chris Kukulski, Bozeman City Manager. "We will work with this permit holder to get to the bottom of what happened."

Kukulski said he's not sure how Ranch Exit Media was awarded the permit because they typically restrict such permits to Sundays.

Downtown businesses will be open regular business hours during the closure.
