Park Street Parking Rules Change

 

To: Members of the Campus Community

 

From:  Members of the Campus Parking Committee 

 

As we prepare to begin the fall semester, we are letting you know of parking changes the City of Grinnell has enacted for vehicles on Park Street.

 

Beginning July 23, 2010, vehicles may park on Park Street between 6th and 8th avenues from 5 a.m. through 1 a.m..  Overnight parking will not be available.  No parking will be available on Park Street between 8th and 10th avenues at any time.

 

The City of Grinnell changed the parking rules in the interest of public safety.  Emergency vehicles have difficulty driving down Park Street when cars are parked there.  We ask for your cooperation as we assist emergency responders in accessing our campus and the homes of our neighbors.  Due to the importance of emergency access, the city may ticket and tow cars parked in no parking zones. 

 

For your convenience, we have created a map  highlighting campus parking areas.  Parking permits are required to park vehicles on campus.  Students, faculty, and staff may obtain campus parking permits at Campus Safety and Security, 1432 East Street (across from the East Campus residence halls parking lot).  Please pay special attention to parking signage to make sure vehicles are parked in appropriate spaces. 

 

The College intends to expand parking on the PEC site,  but this will not be complete until next spring.  In the meantime we will be adding a small lot west of the pool to provide additional faculty/staff and visitor spaces.

 

We thank you for your cooperation.  If you have any questions, please contact Campus Safety and Security at 641-269-4600.

 

Sincerely,

 

Campus Parking Committee Members:

David Zeiss, Assistant Professor, Physical Education Department

Cedar Rohrer, Academic Support Assistant, Campus Safety & Security

Pam Poynter, Academic Support Assistant II, Dean of the College Office

Parking-Graduation Weekend/Graduation Day

 

Hello all,

 

Over this weekend and Commencement morning (Monday May 24th ) we are asking that you not park your vehicles in the interior parking areas of the campus if possible. The campus has a limited number of parking spaces and we are trying to have as many parking spaces as possible for guests.   

 

Thanks,
