Attention AFGE Local 910 Members;
Beginning 11-1-18, the construction for the 5 tier parking structure will begin in lot 4.
During construction we will lose 92 parking spaces, and 8 motorcycle spaces.
To maintain patient parking KCVA management will be designating all of lot#3, except 2 far west rows, and far north row as “Patient only parking”. These spaces will have white striping.
The spaces in the 2 far west rows, and far north row designated as “Open parking” . These spaces will have Yellow Striping.
All of lot#5, 6, and 7 will be designated as “Open parking”
AFGE Local 910 has been meeting with KCVA management to develop a plan to mitigate the impact of this on our employees.
The following items have been agreed to:
Re-striping of parking lot #5, making directional parking (regaining 34 parking spaces)
Moving all Government vehicles/shuttles out of lot #7, to Honor Annex. (regaining approx. 15 spaces)
Loss 92 from lot #4, regain approx. 49-50, net loss appox. 42-43, currently on average only 35 park at Church in our 99+ leased parking spots.
Opening the Elmwood gate between hours of 04:30, and 21:00, (west end of lot #5) and designating it “Employee entrance”, Veterans Parkway (road at east end of lot#5, west end lot#4 will be closed to thru traffic.)
Between the hours of 06:00-09:00, and 15:00-17:00, there will be 2 shuttle buses dedicated to transporting between Church, and KCVA. (the shuttle delivers you to the door 😊 )
We are asking that if your tour of duty falls between 06:00, and 17:00, that you please park at the church.
Enforcement of parking violations will be;
1st offense- courtesy warning to employee, with copy to employee’s Supervisor to re-educate/counsel.
