Did you sign up to volunteer for Paint the Town on June 12? You’ll receive driving directions and parking information by e-mail, but we’re also posting it here just in case that e-mail gets lost in your in-box.
Paint the Town volunteers will meet between 8 and 8:30 a.m. at the Norwood Plaza parking lot. The lot is just north of the corner of Dana Ave. and Montgomery Rd.
Parking is tight, so please carpool if possible. Areas designated for volunteer parking are marked with a P on the linked map. Look for the Avondale Youth Council volunteers wearing navy shirts and holding signs with parking information. Parking areas include:
- Primary parking: Norwood Plaza (please do not park in areas designated for buses, or the small area reserved for Plaza patrons)
- Overflow parking: The north and east side of the Xavier University Cintas Center lot (the rest of the lot is reserved for Xavier activities). Walkways connect this lot to the Norwood Plaza lot.
Directions from 71 or 75 from Kentucky
Take the Dana Ave. exit. (If you’re traveling north, this exit shoots you onto Duck Creek Rd. Turn left onto Duck Creek, then left onto Dana.) Drive west on Dana Ave. Turn right (north) onto Montgomery Rd. Turn left onto Cleneay Ave. The next driveway on the right takes you into the Norwood Plaza lot. To park in the Cintas Center lot, continue straight Cleneay Ave. and turn right onto Pacific Ave.
Directions from 75 traveling south
Take the Norwood Lateral (exit 7) to Montgomery Rd. This exit doesn’t take you right to Montgomery. You’ll need to turn left off the ramp onto Wesley, left onto Norwood Ave. and left (south) onto Montgomery. Stay on Montgomery for about 1.2 miles. Norwood Plaza will be on the right, marked by a tall blue sign at the main entrance (you’ll also see Captain D’s Seafood). To park in the Cintas Center lot, take the next right onto Cleneay Ave. Continue (you’ll pass another Norwood Plaza entrance) until you turn right onto Pacific Ave.
