Petition to Change New Parking Regulations
As I'm sure most of you know, Clarkson recently changed their parking regulations to expand commuter parking and reduce the number of available spots for residents. It is my belief that these changes are unfair to those that live on campus, especially Price and Graham halls. The allotted space that Cheel Parking has been reduced to is not enough to accommodate those who live here, even including the lower Cheel lot which is consistently full. The Cheel lot is used by those living in Price and Graham, Quad (Ross Brooks specifically), and Moore house. While I understand that commuters need places to park, enough of the Cheel lot was already given to them. If anything, the Moore house lot would be better suited for commuter spaces. Additionally, to place the needs of people coming for 'event parking' over those who pay up to $60,000 a year to study and live here is absurd. Priority should always be on the students, especially those who live here. It is my goal to make the regulations what they were at the start of this semester. I created this petition to prove to the parking committee that this is unfair and that Cheel lot should be kept for the students. I hope you all will stand with me.
