(2) At the time the advance notice is given, provide a list of the names of the persons or alternates who wish access to the premises.

(3) In the event two or more requests for access to a facility for the same or overlapping times have been made, the facility administrator should attempt to provide alternate designated areas. In the event that no alternate designated area is available, the facility administrator will grant access to the available designated area on a rotating basis with equal time for its use.

(4) If the designated areas are unavailable due to a prior reservation, then the facility administrator shall immediately notify the requesting party of such conflict.

All organizations or non-employees will have equal posting rights to any designated posting area.

(E) An organization or non-employee shall be permitted to solicit or distribute literature in designated parking lots without providing advance notice.
