UPDATE: The location at the Lane Events Center will be Meeting Room 1 not 100.

Additionally, there will be cooled accommodations for pets.


In response to the extreme heat, Lane County will open an evening cooling and respite location at the Lane Events Center (796 W 13th Ave), in Meeting Room 1. The location will open at 5 p.m. and close at 8 p.m throughout the duration current heatwave.

Guests can check-in at the front desk. Snacks and water will be provided at the facility, and restrooms are available.

Parking is available in adjacent lots, as well as street parking. Thanks to LTD, all transportation to the cooling and respite facility will be free of charge. Riders simply need to state they intend to travel to a cooling center and a ride to the nearest open center will be provided.

As a reminder, this cooling and respite center is designed to bridge the gap from when most cooling areas close and the temperatures begin to fall. This is not an overnight shelter and will close promptly at 8 p.m.
