Conference Room: Now Available to Businesses

By popular demand, we have revised the policy on Conference Room Use to once again allow access to local small business owners and independent contractors. We hope this change will allow us to better support our local entrepreneurs and work with the city in its efforts to help grow their businesses and develop our community.
