New parking options in Ft Sanders

The 80-spot parking lot owned by Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center will be open to the public for free after 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays - except for special events, like home UT football games (of course), according to an arrangement the operation worked out with the city.

The lot is located at the corner of 19th Street and White Avenue. The hospital agreed to make it available for public parking to aid Knoxville's ongoing redesign and redevelopment of the Cumberland Avenue Corridor, according to a release. City Council approved the agreement last month, at no cost to the City.

"We know that public parking is a chronic need in Fort Sanders, for visitors and merchants alike," said Bob Whetsel, the City's Director of Redevelopment. "Thanks to this agreement with Covenant Health, it will be easier at least in the evenings and on weekends."
