Norris Center Parking InfoStarting June, norris Center building management will be STRICTLY enforcing parking. ALL Norris attendees must park on the roof of the garage. Those who need handicapped or oversized vehicle parking will be the exception and there are designated spots for those folks. All others will be required to park on the roof. If unloading items, that is fine to do so in a nearby parking spot and then move the vehicle once finished. Attached is the parking map.
