The renovation of the Flagler Palm Coast High School parking lot is scheduled to begin on March 1 with work starting in front of the Fitz Flagler Auditorium.

“We’re really excited about it. It’s long overdo,” Flagler Schools Plant Services Director Kory Bush said. “It’s served its purpose, but I’m so glad that we’re finally able to do this.”

The improvements will include better drainage, more parking spaces, an updated traffic pattern and improved lighting.

A new pipe will be installed underground going into the pond west of Transportation Way. That road will be close on March 7-8, Bush said.

“The drainage over there is horrible and there’s not much drainage in the parking lot at all,” he said.

Bush said they will eventually add about 15 inlets to the parking lot with water draining below grade to the pipes. The auditorium lot will not be accessible until the project is complete. At the end of the school year, the rest of the parking lot will be closed with the renovation scheduled to be complete by Aug. 1.

“The parking lot is going to be a lot more user friendly,” Bush said. “Right now, you go in there and it's like a maze to try to get back out. You can only come out one way.” 

The new parking lot configuration will allow people to drive down any row toward the exit instead of having to go back around to the school.
