PARKING AT TUESDAY VERSES: Our farmers market is getting a face lift and 17th Street Market place will not longer have through traffic. All businesses will have patio seating and the market place will now be a landscaped grass area. Parking is now available on Franklin St, Main Street, 18th Street and there is also a paid lot at 100 N. 17th Street when you head out to Verses at Addis Ethiopian Restaurant. Construction began this Monday and will be finished by Spring 2018 — so don’t be alarmed when you see construction on the block. It is just part of the process to get brand new.
