|Lot Opens for Evening and Weekend Public Parking in Fort Sanders|
Press Release December 29, 2014
|Some good news for anyone looking for evening or weekend parking in Fort Sanders: Under an agreement with the City of Knoxville, a parking lot owned by Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center is now open for free public parking after 6 p.m. and all day on Saturdays and Sundays. |
The lot, at the corner of 19th Street and White Avenue, has 80 spaces. The hospital agreed to make it available for public parking to aid the City's ongoing redesign and redevelopment of the Cumberland Avenue Corridor. City Council approved the agreement last month, at no cost to the City.
"We know that public parking is a chronic need in Fort Sanders, for visitors and merchants alike," said Bob Whetsel, the City's Director of Redevelopment. "Thanks to this agreement with Covenant Health, it will be easier at least in the evenings and on weekends."
The lot will not be free during special events, including home football games.
Contact KUB at 524-2911 if you have questions about this or any other KUB construction activities.
