Parking Wars: Parking May Be Issue in 2011, Beyond

2011 and 2012 could be interesting years for Marietta College students, faculty, and staff when it comes to finding a parking spot.

With new dorm construction starting in March, a major portion of Marietta College parking spaces will be destroyed near Mills and McCoy Halls.  At the same time, proposed legislation in the City of Marietta would require parking permits for street parking on the North side of Campus.  Wondering how that’s all going to play out?  Check out the map below!  You can click on the colored boxes to find out what type of parking it will be, and where temporary and new parking lots will be.

More to the story below map!

Color Codes:

White = Lost parking spaces
Light Blue = Temporary Parking Lot
Purple = New Parking Lot
Green = Faculty and Upperclassmen Parking
Blue = Upperclassmen Only Parking
Yellow = Faculty and Staff Only Parking
Red = Freshmen and Commuter Parking

Mills and Lower McCoy parking lots will be lost completely, while the College will maintain about 12 parking spots in the Upper McCoy lot (two of which will be handicap spots).  Temporary lots will be placed on either side of the old Miller Welding building on 4th Street, near the Commuter Lot across from the College’s tennis courts.  Demolition of Parsons Hall will yield a new parking lot on its location, with part of Parsons Field being paved as well.

Across the street from campus, if approved, homeowners would be eligible to purchase up to two parking passes for street parking spots near their home.  This is according to the Parkersburg News-Sentinel, which has been reporting on the issue more so than the Marietta Times of late.  As part of the proposal, parking spaces would be reserved for Sorority members living in the Chi Omega and Alpha Xi Delta houses.  Spaces would be restricted to pass holders between 7 AM and 6 PM, but would be available to anyone outside of those hours.  Fines for violating the parking restrictions would range from $25 to $50.

So how do you feel about this huge parking mess?  Let us know in the comments!

A demolition crew was brought in to knock down several of the walls that still stood after the Front Street Fire this morning that claimed three businesses.  While full coverage of the demolition will come later, here is vide of the last wall standing coming down with the help of a wrecking ball.
