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?

2017-06-16 19:53:47 UTC  

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.

2017-06-16 19:56:50 UTC  

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.

2017-06-16 20:00:02 UTC  

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.

2017-06-16 20:00:23 UTC  

^^^ there you go 😂

2017-06-16 20:00:26 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:00:51 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:01:22 UTC  

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.

2017-06-16 20:03:10 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:03:21 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:03:43 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:04:08 UTC  

@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.

2017-06-16 20:05:29 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:05:51 UTC  

What about the McDonald's and Staples parking lots?

2017-06-16 20:06:23 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:06:30 UTC  

They have both started to crack down on parking.

2017-06-16 20:06:45 UTC  

2017-06-16 20:06:48 UTC  

2017-06-16 20:06:52 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:07:03 UTC  

2017-06-16 20:07:30 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:07:33 UTC  

Should be okay early on a Saturday

2017-06-16 20:08:01 UTC  

There are the water street and market street garages

2017-06-16 20:08:19 UTC  

those are the closest

2017-06-16 20:09:31 UTC  

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.

2017-06-16 20:09:41 UTC  

ah

2017-06-16 20:09:43 UTC  

good to know

2017-06-16 20:10:09 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:10:29 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:10:36 UTC  

There are a number of garages at the uni

2017-06-16 20:12:00 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:12:00 UTC  

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.

2017-06-16 20:12:41 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:13:41 UTC  

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.

2017-06-16 20:14:20 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:14:32 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:14:57 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:15:07 UTC  

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

2017-06-16 20:15:35 UTC  

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