As you purchase your parking permit for 2023-2024, keep in mind that if you need to park at the Dubois Center, you must pick the permit option that includes + CCB (e.g. Annual – Premium Access + CCB).

Simply select the + CCB option when you purchase your permit; this will allow you to park at 422 E. 9th Street (gravel lot) at the corner of 9th and Brevard streets.
