The TJPDC office is just south of the downtown pedestrian mall, at the corner of 4th and Water Streets.


The most convenient parking is in either multi-level public parking garage operated by Lanier Parking:

  • Water Street Parking Garage, located on 2nd St SE, just off Water Street, or
  • Market Street Garage, located on Market Street at 5th St NE.

The first hour is free for all parking garage users. The TJPDC offices offer a 1-hour parking validation for the second hour. Please note that the validation is not valid for the nearby paid surface lots.
