Parking study draws mixed
reaction from faculty members

BY MARION DAVIS
A study recommending that the
University create about 1,600 new
parking spaces near central campus
drew mixed reaction from faculty
members during Monday's meeting
of the faculty's Senate Assembly.
The Central Campus Parking
Study, conducted by the private con-
sulting firm BRW Associates and
the Central Campus Parking Com-
mittee (CCPC), calls for the con-
struction of a new parking structure
and the expansion of existing struc-
tures on Thayer and Thompson
streets.
Construction of the spaces will
cost about $17 million, and mainte-
nance and operation will cost about
$140 yearly per space.
During Monday's meeting, fac-
ulty members reacted to the proposed
cost of the study's recommendations.
"The question is not, 'Is there a need
for parking?' The question is, 'Can

we afford to try and solve the need
with parking structures?"' said Urban
Planning Prof. Kate Warner.
According to the report, the total
number of central campus parking
spaces has decreased by about 400
during the past five years. Over the
same time period, the number of
faculty and staff increased by about
600 people.
The survey proposes that the
additional parking be financed
through increases in the staff-paid
permit rate. Currently, the yearly
rate is $180, and is scheduled to in-
crease by $200 next year under the
proposal.
Higher Education Prof. James
Miller, chair of the CCPC, said the
committee received a petition, signed
by about 700 medical campus fac-
ulty and staff members, in protest of
such an increase.
As an alternative, many of the
faculty assembly members supported

a sliding-scale policy, in which the
cost of a parking space would depend
upon an individual's salary.
Still others questioned whether
the problem involves car storage or
the efficient transportation of people.
"We need to address the total prob-
lem," said Engineering Prof. Walter
Debler.
Debler added that he wondered
whether the city bus system and the
University bus system are integrated
efficiently enough for commuters.
Faculty members also raised con-
cerns about the safety of parking
structures and the need to allocate
more temporary parking spaces for
those who commute between North
and central campuses several times a
day.

City's parking amnesty falling short
BY NOAH FINKEL The program covers all parking tickets. but didn't know about the

A program to let citizens pay off
old parking tickets at half price will
leave Ann Arbor $100,000 to
$150,000 in the red.
Assistant City Administrator Don
Mason said the city had raised
$134,000 as of Friday from the
parking amnesty program, which
began March 27 and will end May 1.
Mason said the program would
need to raise $400,000 to meet the
parking ticket revenue projections
built into its 1988-89 general fund
budget. But now Mason said he
expects the amnesty program to
garner only $250,000-$300,000.

violations issued before January 1,
except for tickets issued for parking
in handicap areas, in fire lanes, or
too close to fire hydrants.
As always, the parking
department will impound or
immobilize the vehicle if it catches
up with someone who has six or
more unpaid violations.
The city has advertised the
amnesty program on radio,
television, and in newspapers.
But University students seem to
have largely ignored the program.
LSA first-year student Alycia
Spector said she has lots of unpaid

amnesty program. But, she said, it
"sounds like a good idea."
Business School junior Brian
Herzog said he knew of the program
but has not utilized it.
"I would use it if I had more
tickets," he said. Herzog said he
"only" has about 10 unpaid parking
tickets.
LSA Junior Garret Fienberg said
he used the amnesty program for a
couple of tickets.
Fienberg said he approved.
Without the half-price deal, he said,
"It would have cost me double."
