The Carrollton Exempted Village School District announces an update on the parking plan for the 2018 fall season at Community Stadium.
With the recent paving along the main drive and around the stadium, the district will now allow “Early bird” parking for approximately 100 handicapped and season ticket holders near the stadium and behind the Power Training Center. “Early bird” parking will begin at 5:30 PM. Please call the athletic office at 330-627-8410 for further information.
Thanks to dlhBOWLES Corporation, the school district has accepted a generous offer to use the parking lot at 300 Industrial Drive in Carrollton for all Community Stadium events this fall season. The parking lot has approximately 125 spaces on the west end of the building and another 30 in the front of the building. The decision also allows the district an entryway to park a limited amount of cars on the soccer practice field only when accessed through the dlhBOWLES parking lot. Soccer field parking cannot be accessed at the main drive as in the past due to construction and will remain weather permitting each week for only the Friday night varsity football games and the September 22nd band extravaganza.
Over-flow parking on school district property is also available beyond the circle on Industrial Drive at the Shook Construction entrance. Fans parking there are asked to walk to dlhBOWLES parking lot to access the stadium. There will also be a student and fan drop-off/pick-up for the event at the district CNG fueling station off SR 332.
The district will continue to run planned shuttles from the parking lot at the Carroll County Fairgrounds as well. The school bus shuttles begin at 5:00 PM and will run continuously during the event and until after the stadium is empty following each event. Shuttle drop off and pick up will be directly in front of the administration building/farmhouse and includes a flat, paved walkway of approximately 60 yards to the main gate, to and from the bus shuttle.
The district encourages carpooling for all Community Stadium events as the construction project continues. All parking on district property, dlhBOWLES, and at the fairgrounds shuttle will be free of charge as a small thank you for your patience and understanding this fall season.
