ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – (October 1, 2015) – At the request of the City of Atlantic City’s Office of Emergency Management, the CRDA has authorized the Wave Parking Garage, located at 2200 Fairmount Avenue (corner of Mississippi and Fairmount avenues), to provide free off-street parking for all Atlantic City residents and visitors to shelter their vehicles from floodwaters until Hurricane Joaquin passes.
Standard Parking will utilize their standard operating procedures to track vehicles entering and exiting the Wave Garage, and will validate vehicles whose occupants are seeking overnight shelter. This authorization is effective beginning Thursday October 1, 2015 and will end once the storm passes.
The CRDA is also assisting the City of Atlantic City by providing space for the City’s emergency operations at the Atlantic City Convention Center and Boardwalk Hall.
