RESOLUTION PASSED AS AMENDED (unanimous approval)

RESOLUTION PASSED (unanimous approval)
==================

BE IT RESOLVED, That the UAF Faculty Senate endorse the following 
	Staff Council's resolution on parking in response to the 
	recommendations of the UAF Assembly Committee on 
	Transportation and Campus Security.

BE IT RESOLVED, That the UAF Staff Council moves to endorse the 
	UAF Assembly Committee on Transportation and Campus 
	Security's recommendations included in the committee's letter 
	dated October 16, 1990, with the following additional 
	comments and recommendations:

	1.	The long term plan for the university is to have no 
	parking at all in the core area with large parking areas 
	surrounding the campus with ADEQUATE and EFFICIENT shuttle 
	bus service to other campus sites and parking lots and heated 
	warm-up stations in which people can wait for the shuttle bus 
	or wait while their vehicle warms up. Therefore, the plan to 
	expand present parking should follow the guidelines set forth 
	in the Master Plan. This would mean looking at large numbers 
	of parking spaces in surrounding lots.

	2.	Access to handicapped parking spaces should be improved 
	with additional snow removal and sidewalk maintenance. 
	Adequate handicapped parking near buildings should not 
	preclude adequate shuttle bus service with lifts or designated 
	parking spaces in lots surrounding the campus. 

	3.	Under Ballaine/Taku IMMEDIATE NEED (number 2.), we 
	recommend that pedestrian access to campus from that 
	parking lot should be upgraded when the parking lot is 
	expanded and improved.  

	4.	Under Dead Storage IMMEDIATE NEED (number 3.), we 
	recommend that the West Ridge dead storage area SHOULD NOT 
	be one of the existing headbolt serviced parking lots. 

	5.	Designate east and west end of campus so there is 
	clarity when referring to areas on campus.  


				***************

October 16, 1990
Committee on Transportation and Campus Security

This committee would like to go on record as saying that we believe 
there to be a major shortage of parking and have formulated a plan, 
both short and long term, to help ease the situation.  

1.	Nenana Lot (across from Patty Gym) IMMEDIATE NEED

We recommend that this lot be expanded and upgraded to include 
parking spaces with plug-ins for 1500 vehicles.  We would also like 
this lot to be equipped with a lighted and heated warm-up shelter 
(complete with emergency phone).

The reasons for choosing this site for such a large lot are many:

a.	The area is already cleared and soils samples were taken 
	during a study done on this area by Gray, Rogers, Myers & 
	Morgan on June 9, 1971.  Plans are available from Facilities, 
	Planning and Construction.  

b.	This lot is easily accessible and close to the main entrance 
	to campus.  

c.	The location figures in to the Master Plan.

d.	The area is on the current shuttle bus route.

e.	Because of the study that has already been done on the lot 
	and because of adequate drainage, this lot becomes the least 
	expensive alternative for the amount of new parking gained.  

2.	Ballaine/Taku IMMEDIATE NEED

We recommend that this lot be expanded by 250 spaces.  We would 
also like for the current lot to be upgraded, including regrading and 
repaving the existing paved area and paving of the area currently 
unimproved.  This parking lot should also be equipped with a lighted 
and heated warm-up shelter that includes an emergency phone, and 
be added to the shuttle bus route.  

The reasons for expanding and upgrading this lot include:

a.	Transformers already exist in this lot and would, therefore, 
	be less costly to power.

b.	There currently exists unimproved parking in this area.

c.	This area provides closer access to east campus and 
	consequently relieves stress in the core area.

d.	Additional unimproved lots could readily be created.


3.	Dead Storage IMMEDIATE NEED

The current dead storage located near the power plant should be 
enlarged to double its current capacity.  At the same time, another 
dead storage facility should be created on the West Ridge to 
accommodate the faculty, staff, and students in this area.  

The justification for this action is:

a.	The Physical Plant dead storage area needs to be expanded 
	in order to house miscellaneous equipment and supplies 
	currently occupying parking spaces around campus.  

b.	In both areas, occasional use University vehicles should 
	be stored in dead storage.  This will open up additional 
	parking spaces.  

c.	A dead storage area on West Ridge would be more convenient 
	for users on this end of campus, rather than using facilities 
	on the other end of campus.  

4.	New Natural Sciences Building LONG TERM NEED

	We would like for this building to include parking for 500 
	vehicles at the time of its occupancy.  

5.	Any Additional Building LONG TERM NEED

	This committee feels that it is very important that any time 
	a new building is to be built, adequate parking should be 
	included in the plans at the outset.  Historically, buildings 
	have been built without adequate parking to accommodate 
	all employees, students and visitors.  It is either too costly 
	or logistically impossible to rectify these situations once 
	the buildings are built.

In summary, we have learned that parking is sorely lacking on this 
campus.  We receive countless complaints and review many appeals 
to parking citations from faculty, staff, and students who have been 
cited because they parked illegally as a last resort.  We believe the 
emphasis should be on peripheral parking and expect that if we make 
these parking areas safe, functional, and accessible by shuttle bus, 
we can encourage their frequent use.
