Parking Expansion DTF

Parking Expansion DTFExample HR

Campus parking lots are crowded. With the planned construction of a new building and continued growth in enrollment, parking lots are likely to get even more crowded. Art Costantino, Vice President for Student Affairs, convened the Parking Expansion Disappearing Task Force (DTF) to study these issues and make recommendations. This page provides information about the status of the DTF's work and explains how to provide input to the DTF.

Options under consideration

1. The first six options:
Before the DTF began its work, the college asked SCA Engineering to study how much parking the college will need to accommodate future growth and to obtain building permits for the planned Seminar II building. A working draft of SCA's report, which identifies six options for parking expansion, can be found here. Please note that the list of options included in this report is neither final nor exhaustive.

2. Six additional options:
The DTF created six additional options to supplement the six options included in the report described above. You can read about the DTF's additional options here.

If you have ideas that you think the DTF should consider or would like to comment on any of these options, please see "Providing Input" below.
