Joe Ferrer, Director of Parking

Subject:  Parking Update


Bill Barrett and Joe Ferrer were invited to join the Senate for an update on the current parking situation. Barret noted that the demand for parking permits continues to rise along with increasing operating costs. The number of daily permits for faculty and staff remain steady at 1837.  He explained that the campus will not lose many parking spaces this semester except for the PA project. Construction of the parking structure in Lot C-D is scheduled to begin June, 2003, and will take one year for completion.  Barrett stated that everything is being done to restore a similar number of faculty/staff slots as will be removed with the construction of the parking garage.  Every effort is being made to pursue other options for additional parking and welcomes any suggestions from the campus community.
