Parking Issues

(May 6, 2005)

Vice President for Finance and Business Kathryn Lowery has proposed creating a standing Parking, Transportation, and Navigation Commission.

The issue of having enough parking, a perennial source of concern, is not likely to go away soon, in light of plans to increase the number of students and continue campus capital projects. Other concerns related to pedestrians, bicycling, and mass transit have been raised, as well.

The proposed commission will meet regularly to review and propose campus philosophy, policy changes, and advise on all parking and transportation matters. It will be charged with drafting plans related to parking in the context of the larger campus plans and objectives.

The group will have its first meeting in June.

Reports and proposals will be shared regularly with the President's Executive Committee and the University Facilities Committee of the University Senate.
