The five military veteran parking stalls are marked with red, white and blue signs. Three are near the front mall entrance off Naglee Road, and the other two are at the back entrance off Corral Hollow Road.
West Valley Mall general manager Mike Donaghy said the signs were proposed by former Councilwoman Evelyn Tolbert as a way to honor military service.
“It was a good way to honor veterans,” Donaghy said. “There is a lot of military in Tracy with the depot, and it seemed to make sense.”
Use of the veteran parking stalls will be on the honor system, he said.
The mall had the signs installed in early November, in time for Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
The spaces for veterans are a permanent addition to the lots, joining reserved parking for senior citizens and expectant mothers. The mall’s lots have space for 3,500 vehicles.
