As of November 28, 2016, Parking Services still had 32 current UNF faculty and staff waitlisted for faculty-staff parking permits for the Fall 2016 semester. Will new parking spaces be added and new faculty-staff permits be issued by the spring semester like it was two years ago? At that time faculty lobbied for an increase in spaces and Parking Services created new faculty-staff spaces.

 

Response from the Floor by Vice President Shari Shuman
There is a Parking Advisory Committee, and there are two faculty representatives on the committee. The committee makes recommendations for what rates will be, what types of spaces are needed, and the number
of these different types of parking spaces. A few years ago, we added the ramp in the Arena Parking Garage to the list of faculty/staff parking spaces. No recommendations regarding increased faculty spaces have come from the committee of late. There have been recommendations regarding reducing the number of Blue (category) spaces (Blue spaces Blue parking permits are valid to park in Lots 1, 2, 5, 34, 41, 46, 47, 100 and the Arena and Fine Arts Center garages on the 2nd thru 4th floors) and decreasing the pricing for Gray spaces (parking permits are valid to park in Lots 14, 18, 53 and 60). The current wait-list for Faculty/Staff parking represents an improvement from previous years.

Both I and Diane Tanner serve on the Parking Services Committee. Diane’s email is dtanner@unf.edu and my email address is ash.faulkner@unf.edu. The faculty representatives of the Parking Services Committee invites feedback from faculty regarding parking services. Please forward questions about parking services to your representatives so that they can bring these issues to the
