The Lewis Privately Owned Vehicle (POV) resale lot currently consists of 30 numbered spaces. These parking spaces constitute the only authorized public vehicle resale area on Lewis-Main/North. Unit parking areas, or other public lots, are not authorized resale areas.

Authorized personnel desiring to use the Lewis Vehicle Resale Lot will report to the Northwest Adventure Center, 8050 NCO Beach Rd, with appropriate state registration and proof of insurance documentation. Vehicle owners displaying proper state and post registration documents and proof of insurance will be issued a Resale Lot Permit with an expiration date of 14 days from the date of issue. If space is unavailable in the lot at the time, the owner will not be issued a permit but will be added to a waiting list and notified as soon as space becomes available. Spaces will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

To register your pov, trailer or boad for resale on out POV resale lot, please bring proof of insurance and registration for the vehicle being sold. You can register up to 3 weeks at a time. The fee for a car is $5 a week, $10 for a vehicle or item taking up 2 spaces, and $15 a week for an item requiring our biggest spaces. You may pay weekly or for the whole time,  however, if the item sells before the time is up on your reservation, no refund will be given.

Upon issue of a permit, the authorized user will park his vehicle in the numbered space assigned and ensure that all property is removed from the vehicle and that the vehicle is properly secured. Permits will be displayed in a visible location on or in the vehicle.
