Freshman should have to move their cars to the Jones lot
All freshman that are parked in Q lot should have to move their cars to the Jones lot and the remainder would have to park at the back of Q lot
The following is a portion of a recent campus-wide email was sent out from Anna Welscott:
“Policy changes will accompany the addition of the new lots, which will reduce the number of vehicles on campus. Based on feedback received through the series of campus meetings held this past fall, policy changes include limiting the number of vehicles authorized for freshman resident hall students through a waiver/lottery system of 200 permits, and restricting Mines Park residents from purchasing a General or Commuter permit. These policy changes will reduce the number of vehicles parking on the main campus by approximately 400, and will open up spaces for the students, faculty, and staff who commute to campus.”
With this, we conclude this issue as Freshman parking will face a different structure starting this semester.
Maybe part of that is they make lot FF for commuters (and not residents) so that there is parking for commuters on that side of campus. I know some students who have yellow passes and can't find anywhere to park on that side of campus (other in the Jones Road lot which isn't really a lot).
I agree. For those freshman who live on campus, they don't need to drive everyday so they don't need their cars to be close by. For commuting freshman however, I think the rules should be the same as for other students.
Or even make it so freshman cannot have cars their first year!!
