Prohibited Uses

The following uses are not allowed: activity that advances a religious doctrine; public activity directed toward the success or failure of a political party, candidate, or partisan political group, including events advocating a specific ideology, including fundraisers and campaign rallies; activities requiring multiple spaces during open hours, as this is disruptive to the on-going public programs; long-term, reoccurring weekly meetings/activities that interfere with normal use by the Center partners; banquet events such as weddings, holiday parties, etc. that would compete with private businesses; commercial events in which profit is the direct purpose of the meeting.

Smoking, weapons, and intoxication are prohibited in the facility.
