The Development Services offices are located in the Riverfront Plaza:

- To Lawrence from I-70 or 24 Highway, exit I-70 at the East Lawrence exit, (or come into town on 24) and go south on North 2nd Street and cross the Kansas River bridge. Immediately after crossing the bridge, turn left (east) on to 6th Street and go two blocks to the Riverfront Plaza, which will be straight ahead. You will pass City Hall on your left which is on the corner of 6th and Massachusetts.
- To Lawrence from 10 Highway, continue into Lawrence (10 becomes 23rd Street). Remain on 23rd Street to Massachusetts Street. You will travel through stop lights at Harper, Haskell, and Barker. Massachusetts is three blocks west of Barker. Go north on Massachusetts to 6th Street. This will take you through downtown. At 6th Street you will be facing City Hall. Turn right (east) and go about a block. The entrance to the Riverfront Plaza parking lot will be on the left.
- To Lawrence from the south on 59 Highway (59 becomes Iowa Street). Remain on Iowa to 6th Street. Turn right (east) on 6th Street and continue to Massachusetts. City Hall will be on your left. Proceed straight ahead a short distance to the entrance of the Riverfront Plaza.
Upon entering the Riverfront Plaza parking lot, proceed to the far east end of the lot (opposite of City Hall). There is plenty of two hour parking on the upper deck but be sure and park in white lined spaces. The green lined spaces belong to the hotel.
You will enter the building through the “East Bridge”. Proceed into the building and the elevator is on the left. Take it to the First Floor. Turn right out of the elevator and the offices are just down the hall. The name is “Development Services”.
