Allow parking on West Nields!!
Nield Street could allow overflow parking due to the construction of the New Street garage. During the 2012-13 academic year, WCU will be involved in late August or early September 2012, for the construction on New and Nields Streets for a new 450 space parking garage. During this construction, 180 parking spaces will be unavailable. West Nields Street could accomodate about 120-160 vehicles. Most residents use their driveway or alley parking.
