Grand Opening Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for Palomar College Parking Structure on the San Marcos campus.
Wednesday, January 24, 2018
East side of Parking Lot 12
1140 West Mission Road
San Marcos, CA 92069
This event officially celebrates the grand opening of a new parking structure at Palomar’s San Marcos campus. College dignitaries will be joined by local public officials, members of the campus and community.
The five-story parking structure is over 499,000-square-feet, with 1616 parking spaces, including 28 accessible and six van spaces. The structure is equipped with a number of high-tech features, including license plate readers, LED lights, and electronic signage at each entry identifying the number of spaces available on each floor. The structure features a design with no interior walls to provide safety sight-lines; additional safety features include emergency phones and security cameras. There are three different entries/exits on three different floors to speed traffic in and out of the structure. The design was built into the slope to reduce the building’s north-side visibility.
Event speakers include Palomar College President, Dr. Joi Lin Blake; Palomar Community College District Governing Board President Paul McNamara; Palomar College Vice President Student Services, Adrian Gonzales; Associated Student Government President and Student Trustee, Chris Hopp; and Palomar College Chief of Police, Chris Moore.
Parking for the Groundbreaking Ceremony will be available without a permit in Lot 12 during the hours of the event.
