TRAVEL/LOCATION INFORMATION: Dustin Court is a cul-de-sac that was created for the YCAP building, so many GPS systems do not show this road. Enter "2170 NE Riverside Drive, McMinnville, OR" into a GPS system to get close to the building and from there, it is obvious where the YCAP building is.

Without a GPS system: Turn onto SE Riverside Drive from SE Lafayette Road. Once on Riverside Drive, the building is about 200 yards down on the left.
