II. Items from President’s Staff Meeting

The current parking regulations were discussed with specific note taken regarding faculty/staff having to pay for permits, and looking at assigned spaces. As there were no specific proposals to look at it was decided that no changes would be made at this time. It was suggested and approve that we advertise in News & Notes and the Bengal Newspaper, about free parking at Holt Arena and the shuttle bus service.

III. Parking for Adjunct Faculty

Free parking was suggested by Scott S. Hughes, for adjunct faculty. There are numerous special groups that have requested this type of consideration at past meetings. The policy was reviewed and a decision was made not to make any changes at this time.

IV. Angled parking spaces in Reserved Lots

Steve Chatterton explained that even though angled spaces are easier to get into and out of, addition parking spaces were gained by making them straight. He also suggested that if anyone had specific questions about this policy Scott Campbell at Facilities Planning could explain.

V. Snow Removal in Disabled Spaces

Concern was expressed to Donna Johnston about the snow and ice build-up in and around disabled parking on campus. Steve Chatterton explained that snow removal in disabled spaces was a priority situation handled by Grounds. He further explained that anyone observing a hazardous situation should immediately submit an on-line maintenance request to the Physical Plant to have it taken care of.

VI. Parking at Bartz Field

Todd Scheurman, a College of Technology student, wanted the parking along Bartz Way looked in to. The problem seemed to be cars parking to far out into the street along the edge of the road. There are already No Parking signs along the guard rail that was the area of concern. These signs were installed about 5 months ago, and parking is not allowed along that part of the road.

VII. Visibility Driving Around Reed Gym

Marlene Wallerstedt is concerned about the netting around the tennis courts obstructing vision when driving around Reed Gym. Steve Chatterton explained that there is a stop sign at the intersection in question and if a complete stop is made and then caution used in pulling out, there is really no problem. The Board decided to address this situation again at the next meeting to give them an opportunity to review the situation.

VIII. License Plate Number Errors on Permit Registration Cards

Parking is having a problem in regards to individuals not having their license plate number when they come for a parking permit. Some people just write something on the card, or guess (getting numbers mixed up) rather than obtaining the correct number from their registration. When this happens many hours are expended researching the real owner of the plate when issues come up about who tickets belong to. It was decided to put this on the agenda for the next meeting to give the Board on opportunity to consider what could be done.

There will be no February 2004 meeting.

New Business

I. Parking for Elderly in R-09

Carma Madsen of Communications Sciences made a request that the parking board consider removing part of the meters in the R-09 lot and make them spaces for ISU vehicles to park. This would free up additional parking for elderly patrons who use the clinic. She also requested that use of Official Business Passes in that lot be checked and where appropriate, tickets be issued for abuse.

Steve Chatterton explained that the current number of metered spaces was agreed upon by all department heads using that lot. It was decided that Public Safety would determine who the ISU vehicles belong to and see if they can be moved to other locations. Parking will also monitor the Official Business Passes being used in that lot and ticket as appropriate.

II. Parking for Law Library Patrons

Gene Warren from the library requested tentative approval for three parking spaces to be set aside for the use of Law Library Patrons in the event that the county law library is moved to the ISU campus. It was voted on and approved that the first three spaces on 9th and Lovejoy be reserved and signed for the use of Law Library Patrons only. This will be done only if the law library is actually moved and with the approval of the Director of the Physical Plant and the ISU President.

III. Parking Pass for Classified Employee of the Year

Donna Johnston requested a free General Parking pass be given to the Classified Employee of the Year. This was approved pending the final approval of Financial Affairs, the Director of the Physical Plant and the President Bowen.

IV. Parking in R-08 Lot During Events at Reed Gym

Dev Sasser requested the Parking Board address the issue of reserving the R-08 Lot for events at Reed Gym when students who attend evening classes need to be allowed to park there. It was discussed and determined that no action would be taken.

  2. A faculty permit valid only in specific lot at no cost,
  3. A faculty permit for ˝ price valid in any lot,
  4. A faculty permit for ˝ price valid in specific lot.

This item was tabled until it could be presented when student representatives are in attendance. After student input, a specific recommendation will be presented for further consideration by the full board.

II. Appeals Process

The question presented by Donna Johnston was regarding the options an individual has if a ticket is appealed and the appeal denied by the Appeals Committee. It was explained that the next step would be for that individual to appear and present the appeal to the Parking Board. If still not resolved they would go to Darrel Buffaloe at the Physical Plant; then Brad Hall, University Attorney and then President Bowen.

III. Parking at Performing Arts Center

It was recommended that all parking around the Performing Arts Center be designated General parking. An e-mail was sent to all board members requesting a vote on this as permits go on sale to faculty and staff staring May 1st. A majority responded and approved the recommendation.

IV. Speed Limits in Parking Lots

The question was is there speed limits in ISU parking lots and is it posted. Steve Chatterton explained that the speed limit is 15 mph unless otherwise posted.

V. Pull-out By Frazier Hall

The request was made for a space to be made so that vehicles waiting to pick up individuals on the south side of Frazier could pull out of the main traffic lane.

There have been numerous inquires about the fact that the R-01 lot is never full.
