New parking will be available on Patch Barracks, as two levels of a new parking garage open, Col. Jason Condrey, commander of U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart announced during his Feb. 12 AFN morning show update.
This parking area, levels one and two of the new parking garage, will open on Feb. 14 and provide about 63 additional parking spots, Condrey said. The garage is near the Stuttgart Army Health Clinic – just behind the Commissary, where construction on the new Patch Elementary School is ongoing.
Completion of the Patch parking garage was delayed due to winter weather conditions. Opening of levels three, four and five is expected to complete by June, depending on the weather. That opens 95 more spots. Once those levels open, levels two levels will temporarily close. By late-Summer, the entire garage will be open for parking, 160 spaces, Condrey said.
“We are also looking at a larger parking solution – at Patch and elsewhere in the community,” Condrey said. “We will look at designated parking – who needs it and why – plus where our government vehicles are parked.”
