Anne Lopez reported on Parking and Transportation meeting. Parking
costs are anticipated to go up – not set in stone yet. When you
purchase a space in lot specific zone, they will not over sell
spaces. Zone 1 will be phased out but will have some left.
Payments will be lengthened out from 19 to 24 to help offset cost.
Parking near Plumer will be cheapest (take shuttle in), although
they will need more drivers to transport people. Hopefully in late
January there will be more information on exact lots and costs. Ann
suggests you contact representatives to request lighting on streets
for safety especially for Helen and Mabel. Health Sciences are
being asked to park in new garage – safety concerns. Plans are on
the way to improve shuttle service. Goal for 2020: no parking on
campus only in garages. Suggestion was made that SAC check into
parking spaces at Science Teach Park and ride bus to UA.
