    • Predictable service
  • Possibility of outsourcing
    • Being done at Kutztown

    • 25-30 Resident Only spaces
    • 40-45 Faculty/Staff spaces
    • 3 Admissions Visitor spaces
    • 3 General Visitor spaces
    • 1 Handicap space
    • Designated spaces facilitate snow removal

Three Tier Pricing
  • Three Tiers
    • “On Campus Premium” - $300/yr
      • 71 spaces - W. Laurel & Geissinger/Laurel
    • “On Campus” - $150/yr
      • 211 (current) spaces - All other on campus resident lots except Archives and Steel Field

  • Creates approximately $50K per year of incremental revenue
    • Fund additional parking lot (see other considerations)
    • Fund future parking garage
designate admissions parking on hurd campus
Designate Admissions Parking on Hurd Campus
  • To showcase the HURD campus, prospective students must have easy access
    • Provide 3 designated spaces in Foy lot
  • Creative alternatives to provide spaces for other visitors:
    • Widow’s House
    • Central Moravian
    • Others?
other recommendations for consideration
Other Recommendations for Consideration
  • Extend Lot B to Iron Street
    • Assumes acquisition of final property on that quadrant (we believe that will happen soon)
    • Demolish 225, 227/229 Greenwich and two properties on Elizabeth Ave.
    • Creates approximately 60 additional spaces
    • Consistent with Master Plan
    • Former College overflow housing can be used by the Seminary (losing 227/229)
    • Fund through increased fees
other recommendations cont d
Other Recommendations – Cont’d
  • Explore adding parking lot adjacent to Sig Ep fraternity
    • Creates approximately 25 additional spaces
    • NOT consistent with Master Plan (this space has been designated as part of the Athletic Master Plan)
    • Fund through increased fees
other recommendations cont d14
Other Recommendations – Cont’d
  • Explore Remote Lot alternatives
    • Affordable alternative for students who wish to “park” car for semester
    • Shuttles must service remote lots
    • Equip lots with lighting, emergency phones, and cameras if permissible
    • Potentially limit sophomore parking to remote lots only
remote lots cont d
Remote Lots – Cont’d
  • Current thoughts for remote lots:
    • Those lots we own:
      • Archives Lot
      • Steel Field lot
    • Those Lots we do NOT own:
      • 35 E. Elizabeth Ave.
      • City lots
        • Hill-to-hill bridge
        • West of entrance to Sand Island
other recommendations cont d16
Other Recommendations – Cont’d
  • Encourage/Facilitate bicycle use on campus
    • Survey suggests interest in this area
    • Market as a “green” alternative
    • Minimal investment
      • Racks
      • Storage sheds
other recommendations cont d17
Other Recommendations – Cont’d
  • Continue to explore ZipCar/Philly Car Share
    • “for profit” vs. “not for profit” models are very different
    • LVAIC initiative?
    • Determine the need for this based upon success of other alternatives
other recommendations cont d18
Other Recommendations – Cont’d
  • Consider creating “Corral” on Hurd campus
    • Currently only done during community events, Celtic Fest, and Kriskindlemart
    • ADVANTAGE: Immediate relief for Hurd campus creating approximately 60 spaces
    • DISADVANTAGE: When BAM project occurs, perception may be that we are adding 220 residents and adding only 5 parking spaces (corral is replaced with parking lot with only 65 spaces)
other recommendations cont d19
Other Recommendations – Cont’d
  • Fund future parking garage
    • Increased fees can be accumulated to fund future capital investment
