Parking Issues at Boman Fine Arts Center Addressed

A number of questions have been raised concerning ample parking at the new Boman Fine Arts Center. What most concerns residents around the new theater and meeting center is how parking will be handled when a number of events are taking place at the same time such as a football or basketball game in the Hanson Fieldhouse at the same time a production, wedding, or social event is taking place in the theater. Another concern raised by residents is the future traffic issues from one or more events in a predominantly residential area.

Forest City Mayor Byron Ruiter says the council took a look at the City Code of Ordinance regarding a no parking area around the theater.

There were also discussions on the issue of parking on 11th Street.
