Group seeks city’s help with parking for new music hall

Friends of Music board members Tom Broderick, Marshall Thompson and Leslie Wolf stand at the site where they want to build a concert hall.

Marshall Thompson is excited about the Brookings-Harbor Friends of Music’s recent acquisition of a parcel of land at the intersection of Fern and Spruce streets, on which the nonprofit organization plans to build a 4,500-square-foot, 160-seat concert hall.

But now, the group needs parking — and without it, he told the Brookings City Council Monday night, the concert venue might not come to fruition.

Friends of Music was founded in 1985 by a group of music enthusiasts in Del Norte and Curry counties; in the ensuing years, they have brought high-profile classical artists to local churches in which they perform.

Some recent performances have included Chantham Baroque, the Gould Piano Trio, Men of Worth, the Los Angeles Piano Quartet and the Vienna Boys Choir.

“Now we’re running into parking problems,” said Thompson, a co-director of the organization. 


Port officials enforcing parking regulations

With the summer season in full swing and the imminent Fourth of July holiday, the Port of Brookings Harbor and a private security company have been issuing warnings to people who park at the port after 10 p.m. to use Sporthaven Beach. 

Port Operations Manager Gary Dehlinger said this week that the hours apply to all parts of the port, including the kite field.

“The port closes at 10 p.m.,” he said. “The hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.”

Dehlinger said the only people who can access the port after 10 p.m. are those staying at the RV park and people who have boats moored at the docks. Other people, he said, will be issued warnings to move their cars.
