Q. What can slow down the climate change?

A. According to NASA: "Because climate change is a truly global, complex problem with economic, social, political and moral ramifications, the solution will require both a global-coordinated response (such as international policies and agreements between countries, a push to cleaner forms of energy) and local efforts on the city- and regional-level (for example, public transport upgrades, energy efficiency improvements, sustainable city planning, etc.).

Q. For events at the RiverLoop Amphitheatre this summer, where should one park?

There are more than 300 parking spaces available in the lots that serve the Center for the Arts on both sides of Commercial Street, combined with metered parking located within one block of the center. Downtown meters are not enforced after 5 p.m. Additionally, there are many more spaces available in other nearby public lots and at businesses which also allow public parking after 5 p.m. The Waterloo Center for the Arts offers a map of parking in the area which is available upon request.
