Update on Parking at the CALFIRE Parking Lot - CALFIRE is now allowing Temple guests to park in their lot as it was before the restaurant opened on the corner of 14th & V.  No placard is required.  As most Temple events occur on weekends or after office hours, the lot owner will not have cars towed.
