Evening parking rates will drop from $2.50 to $1.50 an hour from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the heart of the International District. The outer areas, with about 300 of the total 450 on-street parking spaces, will again be free after 6 p.m. The new rates are expected to go into effect in early March.

Help Keep The Beacon Lit!!!

A huge thank you to everybody who has come by The Beacon. The programs are off to a great start! Attendance in all the classes has been consistent, the free after-school program is serving a great group of kids every week and we couldn’t be happier with all of the guest artists who have dropped in to collaborate…  Unfortunately, our term in the space is still temporary with April 9th being our last day, unless we have your help…

We will be launching a fundraising campaign soon to help Keep The Beacon Lit!  

More info to come….. Stay Tuned!
