Helpful Parking Information

      • The city of Conway has designated “fire lanes” with red curbs and signs throughout the campus. Please understand that the Conway City Police has jurisdiction of these areas, even though they are on CBC property. Tickets for parking in a fire lane are very expensive, and we have no control over them. The safety of our employees, students and guests is our highest priority.

      • The same rules apply to parking on any of the adjacent streets around campus. These are marked with “no parking” signs. The City of Conway patrols those areas and tickets will be issued for any vehicles parked there.

      • Central Baptist College employees and students will park off-campus to make room for meeting attendees.

      • Golf cart shuttles will run frequently.

      • All parking spaces on the south and west sides of the Cooper Complex will be designated “handicapped parking” for the duration of the meeting.

      • Please follow the “Overflow Parking” signage for additional parking options close to, but off campus. Golf carts will be shuttling from these lots.
