  • 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, 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 = Bad to Park
