Due to the new bike line installed on Franklin Street, parking in front of Kent-Valentine House on a "floating" basis. After 9 a.m. the left lane in front of KVH is a parking lane and, like other street parking in the area, is limited to two hours. We recommend the pay lot behind KVH. You can reach this lot via Grace St. The Passport Parking app is a handy way to pay for parking at this lot.

Snow Date

In case of bad weather, the workshop will be held on Jan. 31, 2019.
