Haida parking lot crowding

Question

A lot of faculty, staff and students like to park in the upper Chapman (Haida) lot. This morning, the lot was filled by 9 a.m., and typically it is filled by 8 a.m. Anecdotally, last winter it was filled with a bunch of cars that never moved (presumably from students in the dorms using it as long-term parking). Would it be possible to not allow overnight parking in that lot, so that folks who need to commute can use it? (Also, there’s always trouble with car spacing in that lot; is it possible to paint better lines on the boards with the plug-ins, at least?)

Response

I will pass the information to the parking coordinator and the director concerning limited overnight parking in the Haida lot. As an alternative, you can park in the Nenana lot and use the shuttle bus that comes directly to the Wood Center South entrance (roundabout). I have checked with Facilities Services Operations and it would be possible to have the head bolt railing painted. I will put in a work order for that today. If you have any other questions, please feel free to call the Bursar’s Office at 474-7384 or email uaf-bursar@alaska.edu.
