ST. HELENA – PG&E has shared a parking lot at one of its job sites to help out this Napa County city during the busy summer tourist season.

The 40-space parking lot on Mitchell Drive in downtown St. Helena is free and open to the public.

The location is the site of a former manufactured gas plant, which operated from 1883 until 1930. PG&E acquired the property in 1930 and used it as an electrical substation until 1989.

PG&E is working with the city and other agencies as it remediates the site. The arrangement between PG&E and the city will last until April 2014 when the work at the site is expected to begin.

On Monday (June 24), officials from PG&E and St. Helena staged a small ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the parking lot. According to the St. Helena Star, the first car in the parking lot was a classic, yellow 1955 Ford Thunderbird.
