Our mission of the North Platte Downtown Association is to continually strive to be a prestigious and influential force for the improvement of the business operations in the downtown area and to promote the general welfare of the membership of the Association and of Downtown North Platte. We have recently been awarded the designation of being on the Historic District National Registry. As part of our ongoing efforts to renovate the downtown, we have changed our name to Canteen District to reflect the Community and giving spirit exemplified during the North Platte Canteen.
Four large, open lots (colored orange on the map) provide free, unrestricted public parking in the heart of downtown. Most of the businesses in the central downtown area are located within a few seconds' walk to these free parking areas. While some streetside spaces may be briefly unavailable during construction, these free parking lots are always accessible.
