BEALEAFBI31-218 19 JANUARY 2017 Attachment 2 RESERVED PARKING PROGRAM

A2.1. Installation reserved parking is governed by AFI 31-218(I), Motor Vehicle Traffic Supervision, MTMCTEA Pamphlet 55-17, Better Military Traffic Engineering; and AFP 88-40, Sign Standards. The primary intent of the reserved parking program is mission related and to minimize unnecessary and non-mission related reserved parking spaces. Parking spaces may be reserved by written request with proper coordination. A2.1.1. Standard allocations are based on duty positions, disabled persons, mission critical government vehicles, and customers, all of which must be supported by a validated mission need. Once initially validated by the board, these spaces will be assigned a number and an appropriate sign will be installed. Example allocations are (not listed in a priority order): A2.1.2. . Commanders (wing, group, squadron, detachment) A2.1.3. First Sergeants; Wing Senior Enlisted Advisor A2.1.4. Disabled Visitor/Handicapped (“HC”) A2.1.5. Mission critical/emergency vehicles (police, fire, ambulance, U-2 mobiles, etc.) A2.1.6. Mission required for government vehicles, contractors, or essential key personnel. A2.1.7. Customer/Visitor Parking (limited time only--15 min, 30 min, 1 hr, or 2 hrs). A2.1.8. Special Requirements. Some reserved parking spaces may be for special needs or special interest requirements. These requests require written justification and are primarily limited to high density parking areas. Some considerations may be: A2.1.9. A particular disabled employee A2.1.10. Special interest (general, colonel, chief master sergeant, spaces at AAFES, DeCA and Services facilities). A2.1.11. Others may include spaces awarded as part of wing incentive programs, i.e., Family Support Center Volunteer of the Quarter, or of competitive programs, i.e., Company Grade Officer of the Quarter/Year, Airman/NCO of the Quarter/Year, etc. A2.1.12. Reserved parking locations will not necessarily be the most convenient spaces next to facility entrances. Plan accordingly to place some government vehicles away from facility entrances, but do place customer and handicap spaces at these optimum locations. A2.2. The Installation Parking Board (IPB), chaired by the Deputy Base Commander (9 RW/CD), considers all requests and manages the Reserved Parking Program. The board will be comprised of a representative from Wing Safety, Civil Engineer, Security Forces, Union AFGE Local 1025, and major associate organizations as required. The board will meet annually or whenever the 9 RW/CD determines a meeting is needed. A2.2.1. Building custodians are responsible for coordinating parking at their facility, preparing requests and ensuring a mutual complement of reserved spaces and general parking around their building. Each organization is responsible for submitting parking requests, these must be coordinated with the building custodian to ensure compliance with the limitations imposed by this instruction.

A2.2.2. Temporary reserved spaces (IG, DV) for special occasions/events do not require formal approval. Building custodians are responsible for acquiring and placing the temporary signs. A2.2.3. Parking Wardens are responsible for enforcement of reserved spaces authorized by the board. A2.2.4. The 9th Civil Engineer Squadron (9 CES) is responsible for administrating the program, fabricating and installing all approved reserved parking signs and spaces. A2.3. Prior to submission , contact 9 CES/CECNS (ext. 2685) for a plan of the respective parking lot and include a copy with your request. Send requests via letter or e-mail to 9 CES. Include the following with the request: proposed spaces; type of allocations; a plan or sketch of the parking area; justifications; and coordination with the facility manager and the Squadron Commander or Deputy Commander. Requests shall also include: the name, office symbol, and phone number for the point of contact as well as for building manger. A2.3.1. Contractors and union representatives will submit requests through their sponsoring organizations. A2.3.2. The Installation Reserved Parking Board will review requests on a regular basis. If there are questions regarding the request, the respective POC and building custodian will be contacted and/or invited to meet with the IPB. A2.3.3. When approved, CES will install or change signs and markings as required in accordance with their work schedule. A2.3.4. Annual Validation. All reserved parking spaces must be reviewed and revalidated each year by the building custodian/manager. Changes must be resubmitted to the IPB as specified herein. A2.4. Reserved Parking Spaces , as authorized by the IPB, will be marked with standard signs. Generally, the signs will just say "Reserved Parking, (assigned number)" except for CC's, Customers, GOV, Col., CMSgt and handicap spaces. “Self-designed” signs and markings are not authorized. Variations must be approved by the IPB. A2.4.1. Signs should be as generic as possible for uniformity and ease of re-designation with the idea being that only the person with that assigned space number will park there. If someone doesn't recognize the number, they shouldn't be parking in that space. The building custodians will maintain a copy of reserve parking inventory for their facility.
