Students oppose parking swap on campus

Students who are used to parking near the TSC may find themselves hiking across campus if Dave Cowly, vice president of finance, approves the Parking Advisory Committee’s proposal that passed by a vote of 6-4 at its last meeting.The Parking Advisory Committee passed a proposal to make the B Premium parking lot, adjacent to the University Inn, faculty parking. The lot directly north of the Caine Wanless Russell Performance Hall would be made a blue student parking lot.Chief Steve Mecham of USU Police said the number of cars that enter and exit the B Premium and Big Blue Terrace Parking lots as well as the number of pedestrians who cross these areas creates a potential risk, which will be reduced with this proposal.”The Blue Premium lot is a high-turn around lot. Every class break there are a lot of cars. Moving that lot further to the east and making that an untimed lot should reduce the number of vehicles in the area during class breaks,” he said.
