This can probably be removed IMO

Start by adding parking lots to event venues, shopping centers, airports, public use lots, garages, multi-use parking lots, popular lots with heavy usage or URs, etc.

Current guidance is to add PLAs to the map, as the client is being updated

1. If there is a listing with proper name/Address, ex. National Theater Garage/2354 Massachusetts Ave, list the proper name as the PLA's primary name and use then Parking - Address as the alternate.
2. If an alternate address is given for the actual entrance, then add that as an alternate name. Example for National Theater there is an indication that the entrance is 129 8th St, then add Parking - 129 8th St and make sure there that House Number is added to WME.
3. Note some parking lots/garages even have signage that says "Welcome to 2354 Massachusetts Ave" as you drive into the lot/garage, especially if the entrance is on another street.

New parking lot point places can no longer be created. Waze is also importing Parking Lot Areas. Do not delete them unless instructed to do so. Use the guidance here to improve their name, data, shape, and placement. Current guidance is to add PLAs to the map, as the client is being updated. Initially we should focus on adding large and/or popular lots, but all lots should eventually be added.
