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


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

Tyrone 2017-06-16 20:12:00

I've never crowd funded anything. Is there a fee to just opening a request?

Tyrone 2017-06-16 20:12:00

There are lots of people who like what we are doing that aren't going. What if we just started wesearcher requests. Some could be for crazy stuff (like a helicopter for Antifa rides). It would be funny and some of them might actually get funded. That would make planning much easier.

Stanislav Đajić 2017-06-16 20:12:41

@Tyrone Not just to open, but WeSearcher takes something like 15% off the top.

Erika 2017-06-16 20:13:41

I feel like garages would be unsafe if we have a pack of ferals following us. Or just generally unsafe since the entirety of Charlottesville will know about our presence this time. Idk. I made a point to find street parking about 10-15 minutes walking distance from where we were demonstrating last time.

MadDimension 2017-06-16 20:14:20

The Carver parking garage is a 5 minute walk from the event and should be safe

Tyrone 2017-06-16 20:14:32

So how much does it cost to rent a helicopter for the day?
Add 15% plus the initial fees

Tyrone 2017-06-16 20:14:57

If we hit that it would be fun News to put out into the tubes

MadDimension 2017-06-16 20:15:07

Plus its free. Market Street and Water Street garages are an option as well for those willing to play for parking

PrimitveXaoc 2017-06-16 20:15:35

For parking outside of town I would definitely suggest Monticello high school. (For shuttling)
