NOTAM to restrict diversions

KRIC experiences numerous diversions annually due to our proximity to IAD, DCA, and other airports in the northeast.  We are currently under construction, expanding the A Concourse at the airport.  As a result, our hardstand parking availability is greatly reduced and the availability of parking at other gates is significantly constrained.  We are toying with the idea of issuing a NOTAM to restrict or eliminate non-scheduled diversions to our airport.  Have any other airports issued a NOTAM to accomplish this?  The FSS suggested the following NOTAM:

AD AP CLSD TO NON SKED AIR CARRIER AIRCRAFT

Thanks,

Dereck / RIC Airport OPS

Can't speak to your situation, but may I suggest coordinating directly with the airlines themselves?  It may be more effective than a NOTAM buried somewhere in the pages of NOTAMs.   The dispatchers and pilots may miss the NOTAM, but direct coordination could help during the decision making process.
