Six Flags, county reach parking deal

By From page A12 | April 28, 2014

VALLEJO — Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo is to pay Solano County $400,000 annually to use the adjacent county fairgrounds for overflow parking.

The amusement park has used the fairgrounds for parking since 1988, when needed. The fairgrounds has about 3,400 spaces.

The Solano County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a contract for the next seven years, with an option for three additional years. The payments will rise according to the Consumer Price Index each year, with a minimum increase of 2 percent and maximum of 4 percent.

In addition, the county will relocate and improve the primary parking lot at the fairgrounds at an estimated cost of $495,000. Six Flags will pay $320,000 and the Solano County Fair will pay $175,000. Work is to be completed by June 2015.

Six Flags will receive reimbursement for the parking lot project as a rent credit over five years. Six Flags is responsible for maintaining the primary lot, a county report said.
