Two days after an agreement between Kaiser Permanente and the City of Falls Church to allow public parking in the health center’s garage was put on hold, the garage across N. Washington Street from the State Theatre with 400 parking spaces will be open for free public parking starting tonight based on an agreement signed with the City Friday night.
City Manager Wyatt Shields made the announcement at the City Council’s retreat Saturday. He said that abundant signage has been ordered to inform the public.
The public is permitted to park on the second level of the parking garage located at 201 N. Washington St. in Falls Church on Fridays from 6 p.m. to 3 a.m., Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 a.m., Sunday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. and on certain holidays like Memorial Day from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Vehicles must be removed before the posted hours of closing, as the gates will be closed and locked. Vehicles left in the deck after closing will not be accessible until the facility reopens for business or public use. During public use hours the facility will be patrolled by City of Falls Church Police.
The agreement between Kaiser and the City of F.C. is in effect until June 2014.
