Juneau Voices Matching Game

Explore the Juneau Voices Audio Walk with our Matching Game DIY activity starting March 4 at 4:30pm! Juneau Voices Audio Walk is a series of 11 location-specific, place-based sound installations featuring stories and memories told by Juneau residents who lived them. Print out a Matching Game form, go to the different signs, listen to the stories, and match the storytellers to a story theme. Bring a completed Matching Game form to either the Juneau-Douglas City Museum or the Downtown Public Library to get a limited edition Juneau Voices bookmark while supplies last.

Starting March 1, CBJ rules for parking garages, lots & on-street parking resume

The City and Borough of Juneau will resume applying parking rules in Downtown Juneau effective March 1. That means CBJ’s downtown garages and pay lots will once again charge for parking, and on-street parking will be limited to two consecutive hours (or otherwise noticed time limit) during enforcement hours. See a map of the Downtown Parking Management Area here. CBJ will give warnings during a brief grace period before issuing citations.

The public can purchase parking permits for the Downtown Transit Center and Marine Parking Garage starting Monday, February 22. A valid permit will be required to park in these facilities effective March 1. The public is encouraged to purchase a permit by email or mail:

Joke Hotline Continues on Weekdays

The survey results were favorable and the many positive comments have inspired us to continue the joke hotline into the New Year. Jokes will be updated by 10:00 a.m. every weekday, Monday through Friday. Call 907-586-0428 for a clean, sometimes goofy, and oftentimes corny, joke! We are always on the lookout for new jokes, you can submit yours at bit.ly/jokehotline. Maybe our volunteers will choose yours next!

Parks & Recreation Commercial Use Regulation Update

The CBJ Parks & Recreation Department is considering changes to the regulations that govern commercial use of parks and recreation facilities. Existing regulations were written nearly 25 years ago, and a number of changes are proposed to provide a better framework to manage commercial use of these public facilities. For more information, please visit the project page.
