Art Fair crowdsmean Art Fair park-
ing problems, but both University and
city officials are attempting to alleviate
some of the headaches the onslaught of
art shopppers can produce.
According to Jim Stein of the city's
parking department, city parking
structures on Forest and Maynard will
be available to Art Fair shoppers at a
cost of around two dollars "per drive
in"-the charge is not dependent on the
amount of time a car is parked.
ART FAIR PATRONS may also
make use of the, University's 2,668
visitor parking spaces, Rose Marie
Brushaber of the University Parking
Operations Office said. In addition to
that, guest permits can be purchased
for two dollars for any vacant faculty
parking spaces.
The University parking structures
are h eated on South Universit

off limits for parking. They include:
both sies of Tappan from SouthI
University to Monroe; the south side of
Monroe from Tappan to East Univer-
sity; and both Willard and East Univer-
sity to Forest.
Pioneer High School's parking lot will
be open to the public, Ann Arbor Police

running every 15 minutes from the lot to Daily Photo by JIM K

spokesman, security is simply an ex-
tension of regular foot patrol tactics.
'The spokesman, who asked not to be
identified, said the Art Fair is
"basically a city within a city-it's
fairly centralized."
THE MAIN OBJECTIVES of officers
patrolling the fair are crime prevention
and service to vendors and patrons, he
said.
In the crime prevention department,

police officers can act mainly as a
deterrent to crime by their presence in
the area, the spokesman said. "It's
more of a preventive control than
anything else," he said.
The AAPD will provide an average of
10 officers per day over each day of the
fair. But despite having a total of 30
people (on overtime pay rates), the
police warn they cannot be everywhere
at once. For example, patrols will be
