New Business

I. Report on Rendevous Center Parking

Scott Campbell explained some of the options available for additional parking around the Rendezvous Center and what the center would be used for. One option was to build a retaining wall to expand the area in front of the Owen/Redfield complex by one row, with funds provided by putting in meters and the revenue from these meters helping offset the cost of construction. Another place to add spaces would be behind Owen/Redfield which would also necessitate building a retaining wall. The estimated cost for this additional parking would be approximately $3,000 per space. The Parking Board agreed they needed time to talk to their constituents and then put this back on the agenda at a future time.

II. Student Complaint - Students Parking at Visitor Meters

This was presented to the board at the request of James E Bates who received a ticket while parking at the Dillon Street meters, which are signed as “visitor only” meters. His contention was that he was not currently in class so he should be considered a visitor. The Board discussed this with a recommendation that no changes by made at this time.

III. Disabled Parking at Housing Units

This is in regards to the disabled space in front of Lance Johns apartment. This space is used by individuals who come to help, but have no disabled permit. Lance Johns was not present at the meeting. The Board recommended that this be handled administratively by the parking office.

IV. Ticketing at University Place

Connie Gomez requested the wording of the parking regulations to be more specific regarding ticketing at University Place. In particular she would like the regulations to state that ticketing would be done during spring break and finals week, but not the first week of classes both in the fall and in the spring to allow students a chance to purchase parking permits. A recommendation was made that she submit a proposed change to be considered at the next meeting.

V. Charging For Guest Passes and/or Not Ticketing Entire Lots

At this time, departments are allowed to request pads of guest passes that can be handed out by these departments that request them. In the past the parking office has just given them what they ask for. With the increased number of passes being requested there has also been an increase in abuse. It was suggested that each department be allotted so many guest passes and then additional requests would be charged for. The Board made no recommendation on this item. The request to charge departments who request no ticketing of an entire lot was held over for future discussion.

VI. Purchased Permits vs. Guest Passes

Guest passes are being issued to individuals taking non-credit classes on campus. The Board has recommended these individuals also be required to purchase a permit to park, just as regular students who have paid fees are required to purchase a permit. Depending on the length of the class, these individuals will be given the options of a day pass, monthly permit or a summer permit. If the classes are a semester long, the individuals will be required to purchase a semester permit. A vote was taken with recommendation for approval.

The next meeting was set for May 4, 2006.

Old Business

I. Wording of Parking Regulations regarding ticketing at University Place

Held over until fall.

II. Charging for parking passes for non-credit classes

Held over waiting for approval.

New Business

I. Appeal denied by Faculty/Staff Appeals Committee:

Randy Humpherys presented an appeal to the board that had been denied by the Faculty/Staff Appeals Committee. This was in regards to a citation received for failing to have his hang tag displayed. He had previously been given a hang tag warning for the current semester. The board upheld the decision of the appeals committee based on the fact that he had received 12 prior tickets that had all been warned.

II. Make up of student Appeals Committee at Pocatello and University Place

A recommendation was made by Noah House to change the wording in the Parking Regulations to more clearly define the make up of the appeals committee and how they are selected, both at University Place and Pocatello. For Pocatello the only change would be to increase the number on the committee to four. A separate paragraph would be added as follows for University Place.

The ASISU Idaho Falls Vice-President, with the approval of the ASISU Senate, appoints the chair for the Student Appeals Committee for University Place. This committee consists of three additional students. One student is selected from the University of Idaho. The chairperson will also serve on the Campus Parking Advisory Board. The committee hears all student appeals, except their own. Student hearings are held monthly, or as needed at the Bennion Student Union Building.

The board approved the recommended changes.

III. Proposal to make non-permit space available at the PAC - Rebecca Hewett:

Rebecca presented a proposal requesting part of the G-17 parking lot at the Performing Arts Center be make into a “no permit required” area. Currently when events are going on during the day attendees are taking up the parking that is closest to the building and students attending classes and are on a tight schedule have to park further out. Steve explained that the way the parking is designed there is no viable way to section off spaces other than portable barricades. Also, at a previous meeting the Parking Board had recommended that the parking at the PAC would be general, with the exception of the small area that was made a reserved lot. The Board discussed this and voted to not make any changes at this time.

IV. Sign free 12 minute meters by SUB with “No Official Business Pass” - Noah House:

Noah recommended that the free 12 minute meters be signed so that Official Business Passes would not be valid at these meters. The justification for this is that individuals with official business passes who work in the area of the Student Union and Gravely Hall were using them to park all day. The Board voted to approve this recommendation and also to change the time from 15 minutes to 20 minutes as they felt that the time was to short to be of benefit to anyone doing business in that area.

ELECTION OF NEW PARKING BOARD CHAIR: Martin Hackworth

Old Business

I. Charging For Parking Passes For Non-Credit Classes

This was referred back to the Parking Board by Facilities Services for additional input from department heads and affected organizations. Held over to give board members an opportunity to get feed back from the groups they represent.

New Business

I. Request For Dedicated Parking Space to Auction for Fund Raiser

Nancy Seroski and Jacqueline Brown requested that a dedicated general parking space be made available for auction at the College of Pharmacy fund raiser. The Board discussed this and voted to recommend this. There was one dissenting vote with the concern being that this would open the door for other groups that currently ask for free parking permits. The Parking Board felt that they would address any other requests for the same privilege and rule on a case by case basis.

II. Second Permit Purchase for a Reduced Price

This is something that has been done administratively to accommodate individuals who own two vehicles but only have reason to park one on campus at any one time. The parking office felt that specific guide lines should be established and then added to the parking regulations. The cost for this second permit was also discussed. It was determined that a specific recommendation, including the wording to be incorporated into the parking regulations and the price to be charged would be provided at the next meeting.

III. Motorcycle Parking

Martin Hackworth discussed the motorcycle parking available on campus. He requested that additional areas be made available to accommodate the increased number of motorcycles and that the areas be better signed and/or painted. The parking office will provided recommendations on areas that may be made available and also check on the feasability of additional signs. The cost of motorcycle permits was also discussed and any change in the fee still needs to be determined.

IV. Fee Increase for Parking Meter Use

This was addressed by the parking office as the parking meters on campus are very old and repair parts are no longer available from the manufacturer. The cost of trying to keep them functional has increased until it is not cost effective. The revenue generated by an increase in the use fee would be used to purchase new meters, with improved technology. The board requested additional specific information on how much the increase would be and also the possibility of having options on them that would allow users to pay with a credit card or other form of payment rather than coins. The parking office will report on options and costs with a recommendation at the next meeting.

Next meeting is scheduled for October 27, 2006.

Minutes of meeting held September 18, 2006 were approved.

Old Business

I. Report On Request for Designated Parking Space

Steve Chatterton reported that the request by the College of Pharmacy Professional Pharmacy Student Alliance that a dedicated general parking space be made available to auction as a fund raiser was not approved by Facilities Services. The explanation for this was that there would then be an obligation to do the same for similar organizations making a like request.

II. Charging for Parking Permits for Non-Credit Classes

The board members present reported they had discussed this with their constituents and they again recommended approval. They requested that specific guidelines and a fee structure be submitted by the parking office for final approval at the next meeting.

III. Second Permit Purchase

The following recommendation was submitted by the parking office and approved by the parking board. The only change recommended by the board was that the fee be increased to $15.00.

Second Permit Purchase: Upon written request by an individual stating the reason for the request and certifying that only one vehicle will be parked on campus at any one time, a second permit will be issued for the lot that a full price permit has been purchased for. A fee of $15.00 will be charged for the second permit.

If a second General permit is requested the individual must designate which General lot (one lot only) both permits will be valid in.

Any violation of only one vehicle on campus will result in the second permit being revoked, the permit confiscated with no refund and a citation being issued.

IV. Motorcycle Parking

Maps and pictures were made by the parking office indicating areas that could be made available for additional motorcycle parking without reducing the number of regular space in any given lot. The board recommended these spaces by signed and painted as indicated. The cost for a motorcycle permit was not set at this time and will be discussed at the next meeting.

VI. Parking Meter Fees

This item was carried over and will be placed back on the agenda at a future meeting.

New Business

I. Faculty/Staff Appeals Committee

Martin Hackworth placed this on the agenda, however as there were no other faculty members present from the Pocatello campus. He will contact them individually regarding members for the appeals committee.

I. Report on Second Permit Purchase

Approved by Facility Services on agenda for information only.

II. Parking Passes for Attendees of Non-Credit Classes

This item was approved by the Parking Board at the May 13, 2006, meeting. It was requested by Facility Services that it be resubmitted for additional review. It was placed back on the agenda on October 27, 2006, and the Board again recommended approval, after having an opportunity to discuss this with the organizations they represent.

The following was submitted to be incorporated into the parking regulations:

III. Motorcycle Parking Permit Fees

This item was held over from the previous meeting to allow Board members to discuss the proposed fee increase with the organizations they represent. It was recommended and approved that the fee for a motorcycle parking permit would be increased from $5.00 to $10.00.

New Business

I. Transit Bus Cost Increase

Phil Blick from Financial Services addressed the issue of the increased cost of operating the transit bus that operates from Holt Arena to lower campus, as well as the need to establish a reserve fund to be able to purchase new buses. The University has an agreement with Pocatello Regional Transit (PRT) to provide this service which then allows PRT to qualify for matching funds from the Federal Transit Authority. An increase in the price of parking permits was the suggested method to establish this fund. The Parking Board requested that a sub-committee be put together to explore the available options and the amount of funds they would generate. The sub-committee will be made up of Martin Hackworth, John Fitzen, Noah House and Steve Chatterton. They will report back at the next meeting.

II. Parking for the Rendevous Center

Maps and information were provided to the Parking Board detailing various options and the cost of construction for parking around the Rendevous Center. Some options are multi-level parking structures, parking meters and redesigned surface lots. Scott Campbell from Facilities Services was available to answer questions. The Board requested that the map be put on the Public Safety website to make it available to all interested parties. It was decided to put this back on the agenda for the February meeting to allow time for members to present the information to their constituents for input and recommendations.

III. Criteria for Appeals Committee

This was on the agenda at the recommendation of Darrell Buffaloe. Martin Hackworth talked with him prior to the meeting and it was decided that no specific criteria be addressed at this time.
