VIC and Parking Facility Dedicated in Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

U.S. Representative John Mica is special guest

Just a little over 500 days after participating in its groundbreaking ceremony, John Mica, US Representative, Seventh Congressional District of Florida, returned to St. Augustine on Friday, December 15 to cut the ribbon on the completed Historic Downtown Parking Facility and remodeled St. Augustine & St. Johns County Visitor Information Center.

Congressman Mica was joined with scissors in hand by Mayor Joe Boles, City Commissioners Don Crichlow, George Gardner and Errol Jones and Dan Sullivan, chair of the city’s Parking and Traffic Committee. Representative Mica was instrumental in securing federal funding in support of the parking facility.

The city’s $20 million dollar investment in the two facilities demonstrates its commitment to the area’s number one industry: tourism.

Part of a seven-point plan to manage the city’s parking and traffic, a plan appropriately developed by the citizen member Parking & Traffic Committee, the parking facility boasts 1,170 spaces in its  400,000 sq. ft., 24-hour access, and round the clock security. Since its opening July 1 over 85,000 vehicles have taken advantage of its convenient downtown location.

The Visitor Information Center has reopened following a 10 month renovation period that saw the restoration of the interior to its original 1935 configuration and the addition of a west entrance to better accommodate those using the parking facility.

The two facilities are already working in tandem as a reception center for visitors to the city who need a central location to park and receive information and planning assistance for their stay whether for several days or just a few hours. The parking facility has been embraced by residents as well, both those who work in downtown businesses and those seeking a convenient place to park while shopping or to attend a special event.
