Parking & Transportation

2014-2015


Why are Parking Permit Increases Necessary?

  • The master plan emphasizes the goal of a pedestrian-friendly, safe, walkable campus. This results in fewer parking spaces in the campus core.

  • Master plan shows need for 2,400 additional spaces in the next 10 years. The most efficient and effective way is a parking garage.

  • Revenues are necessary to:

    • Increase operating costs at 3% per year.

    • Maintain current parking inventory (current cost is $112 a space per year).

    • Build and maintain new lots and an eventual parking deck.

    • Build reserves for future bond covenants.
