Two high-profile NAU projects are nearing completion.

The 1,400-space parking garage on San Francisco Street has opened one month earlier than scheduled. There are still plenty of parking spots available.

Visit Parking and Shuttle Services for details on getting a permit for the garage.

Next week is the scheduled Grand Reopening Gala of Ardrey Memorial Auditorium. The $7.5 million facelift adds new life to the 40-year-old venue, including 1,340 new, wider, more comfortable seats.
