Parking Near the NCSC Clubhouse

We have a number of neighbors that we need to keep in good stead so please abide by the parking guidelines, below.

  • DO park in the grassy area to the right of the clubhouse, on the left and right side of the railroad tracks. Please pull in diagonally on the right side to leave room for as many cars as possible. If you need to block people in, leave a slip of paper with your name under your left wiper so they can find you. You can also park in front of our house along 7th Street, but be sure not to block the gate.
  • DO park in former Brosius Eliason’s parking lot (around the corner from the club house on South Street).
  • DO NOT park in or drive through the property of our neighbor to the right (the yellowish stucco sided building on the other side of the above-mentioned grassy area). His property line extends from the telephone pole along the road, to the large tree back by the fence. Please stay well clear of his property.
  • DO NOTpark in front of any of the houses along 7th or South Streets, as these neighbors consider these spaces ‘theirs’.  With the availability of the Brosius-Eliason customer lot to us, there should be no need to park along the streets.
