Visitors to SCOE will soon have access to more parking spaces thanks to a new parking lot construction project.

Visitors to the Sacramento County Office of Education administration center will soon find more parking when they arrive for workshops, meetings and training sessions.

"With the addition of our new parking lot, we will bring our capacity to approximately 280 spaces," said Deputy Superintendent Martin J. Cavanaugh. He noted that while the SCOE currently provides parking for more than 250 vehicles, parking spaces are not all in the immediate vicinity of the Administration building. "The new parking lot just across the street from our building will be especially appreciated when inclement weather sets in," Cavanaugh said.

Cavanaugh said that the county office would encourage ride-sharing by providing preferential parking for those arriving by carpool and vanpool.

The parking lot, being constructed by McCuen Properties, is scheduled for completion in November 2005.

On an average day, close to 200 people attend meetings, conferences and training sessions at the David P. Meaney Education Center, which is located at the former Mather Force Base. The 72,000-square-foot building, which was opened in fall 2003, serves as a hub for staff development, computer technology training and educational administration and resource services for schools and districts throughout Sacramento County and Northern California.
