LIUB

Light it up Blue!

The RDA is supporting the National Autism Speaks Light It Up Blue (LIUB) initiative this April! Around the country, individuals and businesses will light the exterior of their properties with blue lights, or even just one blue light bulb. This initiative shows support for continued Autism research, education and advocacy, while also creating a beautiful scene. Now after several years of success, National monuments and cities are Lighting It Up Blue, and the River District is pleased to participate this year!

The Light It Up Blue initiative will span the full month of April, however we encourage all River District residents and businesses to consider installing one blue light bulb (or more) and light on April 2nd, National LIUB night! Google the LIUB initiative to see great images from around the country, and Florida! Blue light bulbs are available at most major retailers.

For more information, please visit www.autismspeaks.org. This initiative is being led by local Ambassador and RDA member Cheryl Jones of Cheryl Jones Interior Design.  Please contact Cheryl at Cheryl@ccjdesigns.net or www.ccjdesigns.net.


Passport Parking

Passport Parking in the River District

As season begins it’s a good time to review the recently implemented Passport Parking program throughout core downtown at all meters.

Guests to downtown who park at meters can download the Passport Parking app or can call 239-790-4675 to register. With this users can pay for parking with their phone or call from the numbered meter and pay via credit card.
Text messages and alerts can be enabled through this app, receipts sent, and guests will be able to extend their metered time from their phone.

Informational rack cards are available at the CRA (1400 Jackson Street) or at Denison Parking (2123 First Street).
