From the RV Planning Team:
In addition the East Parking Lot at the Convention Center, we have received permission to use "Parking Lot #19" owned by the City of Visalia. Parking Lot #19 is on the Southeast corner of E. Acequia and Santa Fe Avenue, one block from the Convention Center.. See Google Earth snapshot below. Everyone on the Pre-Registration list (see chart) has received a personal invitation from Camille Sereni, including a "Reserved Parking Pass", which you can print out and bring with you. She has put together a parking plan based on (1) your type of RV and (2) your expected Arrival-Departure dates. You will be pre-assigned to one of the two lots. Based on our analysis, ALL 32 RVs should fit in these two lots. There are two conditions:
1. If you are towing a vehicle or if you are pulling a vehicle, you must agree to disconnect and move your car or truck to the South Parking Lot of the Convention Center. By doing so, all motorhomes and trailers can fit into the East Parking Lot and Parking Lot #19.
2. There will be a parking fee of $20 payable in cash for the entire weekend. Camille, Bo, or Al can collect this from you
Camille, Bo, and Al will be arriving in Visalia on Tuesday, April 16 and will block out both Parking Lot #19 and the East Parking Lot, to ensure that these lots are available for those of you arriving starting Wednesday, April 17.
Once again, our apologies for the confusion over this issue, but with your full cooperation, we believe this new RV parking plan will work smoothly.
We look forward to seeing all of you in Visalia soon.
