DAAC Floor plan

  • Temporary load in/load out parking is allowed on Saunders directly across from the DAAC's entrance.
  • 2 parking lot agreements have been formed - shown as big green areas on map:
    • Neighboring church,Ā Berean Baptist, is allowing us to use their parking lot between Saunders & Sweet.
    • Star Collision's owner has allowed our patrons to park in their lot across Plainfield when they are not open.
  • There are many other street parking spaces available shown in green.
  • Our only request is not to park in Quinn & Tuite's parking lot to the south of the building (red).

Green = OK to Park

Red = Never Park

Good to park in the church parking lot on the north west corner of Saunders across from the DAAC, Bad to park on south west face of the DAAC building

Map of The DAAC and surrounding buildings and streets. Sweet Street and Coit Avenue are the nearest major intersection. Sweet runs east and west, Coit runs north and south. Plainfield Avenue and The DAAC are situated Southeast of Sweet and Coit. Plainfield is a diagonal line running between Sweet and Coit in the Southeast quadrant. Saunders Court connects Coit Avenue and Plainfield, running east to west, chopping the triangular city block in half horizontally. The DAAC is on the corner of Saunders Court and Plainfield. Just north of The DAAC is a large parking lot belonging to Berean Baptist church, marked in green as safe to park. Wrapping around The DAAC's building to the west and south is a parking lot belonging to Quinn & Tuite's Pub, marked in red as NOT safe to park. Across the street on Plainfield is another large lot marked green, belonging to the auto collision repair shop.
