ommended in a report released,
yesterday by the Subcommittee

The report endorsed the Uni-

for such a program as the "most
feasible" solution to the parking

problem. It also recommended fur-

Drawn Plans
One source reported the Univer-
sity has already drawn up prelim-
inary plans and sketches for two
parking structures, one to be
erected next to the West Quad
and one behind of Health Service.
Vice-Pressient Wilbur K. Pier-
pont said last night, however,

that no such plans have been
made, although possible sites for
such buildings have been con-
sidered, including the West Quad
Carrying out the proposal wouldj
mean installation of parking me-'
ters in the 1,485 spaces in the
campus area and in a similar num-
ber of spaces in the hospital area.
Estimate Cost
Cost for installation of the me-
ters in the campus area was esti-
mated at $40 per space, or a total
outlay of $65,000 or $70,000 includ-
ing expenses for lot alterations.
Rates, the report continued,
would be set at about half those
charged by the city, or five cents
for two hours and 25 cents for a
full day. Annual cost per faculty
members was estimated at $30 toj

Four Necessary
The report said, "it is likely that
a total of four structures, provid-
ing about 2,000 additional car
spaces, would be necessary in the
next five to eight years."
Permits would be required for in-
dividuals using metered spaces,
and permits would gradually be
made available to all full - time
University employees as parking
facilities increased.
The committee inits report em-
phasized that "no official decisions
have been made, although the Re-
gents have approved the policy of
reserving funds collected through
parking charges for the construc-
tion of new parking space, if such
charges are to be made."
Review Suggestion
The report reviewed other sug-I
gestions for relieving the, parking
congestion that have been consid-
ered by the administration, in-
1) Changes in permit arrange-
2) Better enforcement of re-
strictions in parking lots.
3) Closing to traffic of certain
streets in the campus area and us-
ing them for parking and building
access only.
4) Regulations to limit parking
on city streets adjacent to the
campus, particularly to eliminate
dead storage of cars on streets.
These changes,.the report noted,
"are not expected to meet the long
range need. Real improvement re-
quires a radical increase in the
amount of parking space."
Other possibilities included set-
ting aside $50,000 to $75,000 an-
nually in the general operating
budget specifically for parking
space, and assessment of a fee
on all permit holders.
