Reduce parking at IHS Campus
This is a petition to the administrators of Seton Hall University and Hackensack Meridien to reduce the parking fee at the Inter-Professional Health Campus located in Nutley, NJ.
The recent announcement of a $485 fee for parking has outraged the employees and faculty of the new facility. Our concerns are listed below:
A. Parking at South Orange is $300.00
B. We don’t have a parking garage (as they do in South Orange).
C. Most employees are not utilizing the parking permit for ‘clinic rotations’ at Hackensack facilities therefore free parking at those facilities is not a benefit.
D. The lot they have chosen for us is a bit of a distance from the school. We would theoretically need to add approximately 10 minutes (or more) to our commute time to account for the walk from the parking lot to the school building.
E. There is no security. This is not a gated parking lot, but a public area off of Rte 3.
We, the employees of the School of Health and Medical Sciences and the School of Nursing, request that the fee of $485.00 be adjusted, or eradicated, in light of the concerns listed above.
