Make Existing Parking More Efficient
Engineers like efficiency. So, while we're waiting for the new parking garage, here are some ideas to help with parking:
1) Put lines on streets like Illinois to guide parking (like there are in CT Lot for the paid parking spots). This wouldn't cost a lot and would make parking more manageable.
2) Don't charge faculty more for faculty parking spaces. Even at the worst parking hours, the faculty spaces in places like CT Lot aren't full. This would mean faculty would park in these empty spots, making more spots available for students and easier parking for all.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention! We recently discussed this issue with parking and they plan to look at different locations to identify where parking lines could be added. Unfortunately, many of the streets are privately owned, so Mines cannot mark the road. For your second point, Parking agreed and assured us that the number of reserved parking passes will be decreased. We hope you see improvements soon!
