The Transportation and Parking Committee is composed of faculty, staff, and students who are appointed by the President's Office.  The committee reports its findings and recommendations to the Vice President of Finance and Administration.  The TPC is tasked with reviewing and making recommendations on all aspects of transportation and parking on campus. 

The committee has six recommendations for the 2013 fiscal year.  We invite you to review these recommendations and offer feedback by using the e-mail link below each item.  TPC will review comments before submitting final recommendations.

Re-purposing / assignment of parking lots due to the Housing Development Plan

 

Background: 

Construction of new residence halls under the Housing Development Plan will eliminate the current Lots 79, 81, and 82.

TPC Recommendations: 


  1. Lot 133 would become faculty / staff parking (currently designated for commuter parking)..
  2. The South Green Garage would be used solely for commuter parking and no longer be used as storage parking for student residents.
  3. Storage parking would shift to the perimeter of campus in an enlarged area of lots 50 and 55.

    Please review the Campus Map for parking lot locations.

Priority Parking Permits

 

Background:

The light green, grey, orange, yellow and black lots were previously referred to as the seniority lots.  They were issued based on seniority with the University.

TPC Recommendations: 

  1. Priority parking lots would have a permit fee that is twice the existing regular faculty/staff rate.  Currently, this would make the priority permit $300 per year.  Those who were grandfathered in at the beginning of faculty / staff pay-to-park would retain their permits at the current rate ($150 per year). 
  2. Permits would be sold on a space available status and sold via an online waiting list maintained by Parking Services.

    Please review the Campus Map for parking lot locations.

Baker Center Garage Parking

 

Background:


On July 1, 2012, the Transportation & Parking Auxiliary assumed financial responsibility for the Baker University Center Parking Garage from Student Affairs.

  1. Part of the financial responsibility included the Transportation and Parking Auxiliary assuming $100,000 of bond financing debt annually for the facility..
  2. FY14 budget planning projects a budget deficit for the facility.

TPC Recommendation:

  1. Raise the hourly rate from $0.75 per hour to $1.00 per hour to cover financial obligations and to begin to build a reserve to cover maintenance and equipment replacement costs.

Hours of Enforcement Within Lots


Background:

Because of the change from quarters to semesters, classes start earlier and last longer during the academic day. Current hours of parking enforcement are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for faculty/staff (dark green) lots and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for student commuter (purple) lots. 

TPC Recommendation:

  1. Implement a uniform and consistent enforcement period of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for all faculty, staff, and commuter parking lots.

FY14 Budget Planning of the Transportation and Parking Auxiliary


Background:

FY14 budget projections for the Transportation and Parking Auxiliary indicate a deficit of $105,000. Increased demand for CATCAB (a service offered for faculty, staff, and students with mobility needs) are projected to increase transit costs by $60,000. Students represent 95% of CATCAB ridership.  Fees for storage parking permits and student commuter parking permits have not increased in over 10 years. 

TPC Recommendations:

  1. The $60,000 in increased CATCAB costs should be covered by the general fee paid by students.
  2. Increase permit fees as follows:.

 

  • Storage parking permits increase from $165 to $200 yearly
  • Commuter parking permits from $105 to $125 yearly
  • Increase campus meter rates from $0.50 to $0.75 hourly.

Motorcycle Parking


Background:

Currently there is no charge for parking motorcycles on campus and there is no mechanism in place for registering them with Parking Services.

TPC Recommendations:

  1. Motorcyclists would be required to purchase a parking permit at a fee of 25% of the current vehicle rate.
  2. No charge would be made to faculty, staff, and students with current faculty/staff or commuter permits who wish to park a motorcycle on campus.  Instead, they may use their current vehicle permits with a locking device available for purchase from Parking Services.
  3. Storage (overnight) and daily commuter parking areas for motorcycles will be identified.
  4. Residential students would be allowed to purchase motorcycle storage permits.
