NOTICE: Parking Changes During Lot Upgrade

As of September 29, 2014, the Hannah Block Historic USO/Community Arts Center Parking Lot will be closed for an estimated 15 weeks for paving and refurbishing.  In the meantime, we suggest parking in the lot or the parking deck at 2nd & Market Streets while visiting us. On-street parking is also available at a cost of $1.00 per hour and enforced Monday through Saturday from 9 am to 6:30 pm. We are very excited about these parking lot improvements and apologize for any inconvenience.
