Question of the Day: Where Can I Park?

We'll be bringing you a question each day from Belmont students and members of the community about different aspects of the debate, and the answer from Belmont. Today's question comes from Belmont sophomore Jenny Humphrey:

A: According to Belmont, the parking garages under the Gordon E. Inman Center and next to the Curb Event Center will be completely closed starting the evening of Oct. 3, the Friday before the debate. Those lots will stay closed during the duration of Belmont’s fall break, which is Oct. 4-8.

During that time, parking will be available at Greer Stadium with shuttle buses running every 15 minutes between 6 a.m. and 1 a.m. the following morning. Around-the-clock security will be provided at the lot from 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 3 until 5 p.m. on Oct. 8.

Street closings could also affect street parking on Oct. 7, the day of the debate. According to Metro Police Lt. Donald Hawkins, two streets will be closed from 6 p.m. until midnight: Belmont Boulevard from Compton Avenue to 18th Avenue South, and Bernard Avenue between Belmont Boulevard and 15th Avenue South. No vehicles will be allowed on the streets at that time, but pedestrians will be permitted, Hawkins said.
