Existing Situation- Urban campus with no room to expand Residential neighborhoods to the North and East Fox River and Industrial property to West City of Oshkosh to the South
Campus is not pedestrian friendly Algoma Boulevard and High Streets are highly traveled routes into and out of the City of Oshkosh.
Parking Shortage A 2002 study indicates that the campus is short approximately 750-900 spaces for permit holders People are forced to park on neighborhood side streets
Parking shortage Waiting list for resident parking ranges from 300 – 500 students At peak times, 500 K-mart permits have been distributed with up to 250 vehicles parked there at one time Approximately 250 resident students purchase parking from the City Parking Utility, Oshkosh Police Department, and local businesses Commuter parking demand is greatest on Mondays and Wednesdays. With commuter lots filled to capacity, another 500 vehicles are parking on surrounding streets
Parking Complaints My expectation, however unrealistic, is that there would be an available parking space relatively close to my destination. My expectations appear to be too high. --Commuter student An answer that on the one hand agrees that there is a problem and on the other acknowledges there is no immediate solution is not an answer in my book. --Parent of a residence hall student
