Downtown Oberlin - are you ready?!?


Downtown Oberlin is going to be hopping this month: Oberlin College Conservatory auditions Jan 25 - 29, OC students returning, and OC offices relocating to 5 S. Main St. LOTS of opportunities for downtown businesses! PLUS All Roads Lead to Oberlin will begin soon.

In light of these changes, OBP has been in communication with the college regarding downtown parking. The college has done its part to remind staff and students about designated parking lots and time limits on downtown parking spaces.
