- How We Can Help
All eligible Army, DoD, and Civilian personnel may arrange use of the Cole Park Commons. An event is defined as exclusive use of a private room, which entails special planning, i.e. luncheons, wedding receptions, conferences or official military functions. Cole Park Commons ultimately falls under the direction of the Department of the Army. We ask for your understanding, in accordance with established Army Regulations and Directives that special privileges cannot be given to any group(s), to include command sponsored functions that cannot be offered to all patrons.
**Cole Park Commons management recommends that point of contacts schedule an appointment with the office to discuss and plan the detailed event. This allows us to provide each customer with the individualized services his or her special event deserves. Drop ins are welcome, however, please understand that if the manager has a scheduled appointment or is encumbered with an ongoing event, you may be asked to schedule an appointment or to come back in order to provide the best service to all customers concerned.
- Room Reservations and Priorities
Cole Park Commons reserves the right to reassign the space based on best utilization of all function space. A room reservation is tentative and will not be guaranteed until the POC signs a Facility Usage Agreement Form (maximum 180 days from scheduled event date). There will be a $75.00 cancellation fee if your scheduled event is cancelled less than 48 hours prior to the event date.
