Please help us to prevent further deterioration of our bluestone driveway by minimizing parking in the front of the building. In the future, we hope to restore our beautiful entrance way and this new policy will help to maintain it in good condition for years to come.
We know there will be exceptions. Parking is allowed under these circumstances involving WAAM-related business:
1. Intake Day and Pickup – for the handicapped and for those with big, bulky or cumbersome artwork. All others, for example, an able-bodied person with a small piece, please park elsewhere.
2. Loading and unloading large or cumbersome items. Once you have loaded or unloaded, if you still need to be at the WAAM for an extended time, please park elsewhere.
3. Handicap drop off and pick up – once you drop off or pick up the person, please park elsewhere.
The Town provides handicapped parking close to the WAAM: across the street by the Trailways bus stop and in front of the Dutch Reformed Church. Please use these areas when you are able.
Another reason for the new parking policy is that we want our entrance way to be more welcoming when open and when closed. When cars are parked out front, it does not show well and in some cases makes it difficult for visitors to approach.
We know there will be a period of adjustment to this new policy but we ask for all members, staff, volunteers, and visitors to comply with these new guidelines. You can also help by passing the word around as we have noticed people not on WAAM business use our entrance way and then go into Town to do their business.
Please help to make the WAAM more accessible, more welcoming and in good condition for years to come.
Thank you for your cooperation,
WAAM Board of Directors
