Meeting Location and Parking Updates


For some time now we knew the West Building of the John F. Germany Library would be torn down in preparation for new construction. It appears this will begin in January 2020; however, we do have an exact date yet. During the demolition of the West Building, we are not authorized to meet in the auditorium due to safety concerns. Currently we anticipate this affect the January, February, and March meetings. We are working with the library to obtain space in the main library building or other locations. We will keep you informed as more details become available, but anticipate a little more time to get to the meeting space. We thank you for patience and understanding.

For those who use the Poe Parking garage, the bridge walkway between the garage, West Building and the Straz Center is closed and currently being torn down. Therefore, please use the signaled crosswalk at the corner of Ashley Drive and East Cass Street.
