I am another person with a beef about parking. I drove around literally 40 minutes today looking in several lots, not one space available.
When I started at Mines, Freshman were not allowed to have vehicles on campus. Restrictions were lifted with COVID, but were they ever put back in place? If there are more parking permits issued than spots available, then the number should be capped to align with the spots.
They just closed lot I to build a parking garage, which is great. What is not good is that they list a bunch of temporary parking that does not exist yet. Don’t close a lot before creating equivalent parking while it is closed.
