Unloading Zone / Walk-In Entrance to Agility

Carrie has marked up a facility map showing an Unloading Zone that may be used over on the south-west corner of the building right by where agility is located.  The map also has directions on how to enter the building.

NOTE: You may not leave your vehicle unattended.  There is no one at this location to watch over your property.  It is a tow-away zone if your vehicle is found unattended by facility personnel!
