Well, I'd suggest looking in to that as an option.

Tyrone 2017-06-16 19:47:06

Why don't we park on campus?

Tyrone 2017-06-16 19:47:26

School isn't in session and public school campuses are public access

Tyrone 2017-06-16 19:47:41

Shuttle from there

Tyrone 2017-06-16 19:47:57

Plus it will piss people off?

Heinz - MI 2017-06-16 19:48:10

This is where we parked last time.

Heinz - MI 2017-06-16 19:48:18

At least that's where my group parked.

Heinz - MI 2017-06-16 19:48:32

Is this the lot you are saying will be closed?

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 19:49:07

I suggested that earlier as well, there are a few schools in the are none is truly close walking proximity but shuttling, yes.

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 19:49:42

The Omni lot literally connects to that one. Just happens to be more secure, they have security watching the lot cameras etc.

Tyrone 2017-06-16 19:50:23

For egress, we start marching away all together and the shuttles will gradually pick up people from the front

Heinz - MI 2017-06-16 19:53:41

Is Omni parking available for the public, or do you need to be a guest? If it is covered, what is the clearance on the ceiling?

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 19:53:47

That is not the lot that will be closed. It is one that fills up faster during the summer time. It really depends on if the locals are going to try to avoid the area like the plague that day.

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 19:56:50

Or how many people will be in town for this event. We don't see a lot of things like this here locally and I imagine it will draw some sizable crowds from all sides.

Tyrone 2017-06-16 20:00:02

Part of me wishes we would crowd fund busses and leave from 5 miles away and roll up right next to the park like the New England Patriots.

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 20:00:23

^^^ there you go 😂

MadDimension 2017-06-16 20:00:26

PARKING: People are either going to need to pay a few shekels to park in the Parking Garage about ($10 for the day) or we can shuttle them in from a nearby location like Darden-Towe Park

Tyrone 2017-06-16 20:00:51

When 6-10 bus loads pull up and unload everyone it would send a message

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 20:01:22

Omni has open and closed lots and also will allow for busses to be parked there as well, you are not required to be a guest.

Heinz - MI 2017-06-16 20:03:10

We can probably shuttle people in, but the shuttles will need to be parked closeby. Omni should work if that's the case.

TiborSzalasi-MI 2017-06-16 20:03:21

@everyone It's absolutely critical that you not mill about in small groups, you'll get overtaken

TiborSzalasi-MI 2017-06-16 20:03:43

every possible effort should be made to link up as soon as possible, shuttling is probably the best bet

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 20:04:08

@MadDimension Darden towe may possibly be packed that day I can check on the park schedules. Soccer games and other sports there. I was thinking Omni for Private or Clark School for public parking.

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 20:05:29

Also, Monticello high school has sizable lots and is about a 5 min drive (straight shot) from the downtown mall and outside city limits.

MadDimension 2017-06-16 20:05:51

What about the McDonald's and Staples parking lots?

MadDimension 2017-06-16 20:06:23

The Parking Garage at Carver Rec is open to the public as well

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 20:06:30

They have both started to crack down on parking.

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 20:06:52

I was just going to mention Carver. It ultimately all depends on if there are any other events.

Erika 2017-06-16 20:07:03

MadDimension 2017-06-16 20:07:30

We need to make a list of solid parking locations. Carver should be #1. What else?

TiborSzalasi-MI 2017-06-16 20:07:33

Should be okay early on a Saturday

TiborSzalasi-MI 2017-06-16 20:08:01

There are the water street and market street garages

TiborSzalasi-MI 2017-06-16 20:08:19

those are the closest

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 20:09:31

Water street lot between the metered lot and garage is closed down for the farmers market on Saturday's people start crowding that area heavily at 7am or earlier.

TiborSzalasi-MI 2017-06-16 20:09:41

ah

TiborSzalasi-MI 2017-06-16 20:09:43

good to know

Hand Banana 2017-06-16 20:10:09

Look for somewhere 10 minutes outside of town that people could park cars at

Hand Banana 2017-06-16 20:10:29

Downtown parking should be for all the vans we can muster primarily, secondarily for POVs

TiborSzalasi-MI 2017-06-16 20:10:36

There are a number of garages at the uni
