6 Enhance Shuttle Service Addition of 3rd shuttleAlready part of the “operating cost” assumptions with BAM housingInclude at least one “EXPRESS” shuttleShuttle will need to service remote lotsCreate inviting environment to rideCourteous driversPredictable servicePossibility of outsourcingBeing done at Kutztown
7 “North” / “South” Hang Tags Hang tags will have a North/South designationEliminates resident students commuting from North campus to Hurd campusDesignation will NOT apply to employees (residents only)
8 “North” / “South” Hang Tags – cont’d Designate spaces on existing Foy Hall lot25-30 Resident Only spaces40-45 Faculty/Staff spaces3 Admissions Visitor spaces3 General Visitor spaces1 Handicap spaceDesignated spaces facilitate snow removal

Laurel & Geissinger/Laurel“On Campus” - $150/yr211 (current) spaces - All other on campus resident lots except Archives and Steel FieldOn Street and Remote Lots - $50/yr“License to hunt” for street parking and access to remote lots
10 Three Tier Pricing – cont’d Offers affordable option for those who demonstrate a need for a car on campusStudent teachingClinicalsCreates approximately $50K per year of incremental revenueFund additional parking lot (see other considerations)Fund future parking garage
11 Designate Admissions Parking on Hurd Campus To showcase the HURD campus, prospective students must have easy accessProvide 3 designated spaces in Foy lotCreative alternatives to provide spaces for other visitors:Widow’s HouseCentral MoravianOthers?
12 Other Recommendations for Consideration Extend Lot B to Iron StreetAssumes acquisition of final property on that quadrant (we believe that will happen soon)Demolish 225, 227/229 Greenwich and two properties on Elizabeth Ave.Creates approximately 60 additional spacesConsistent with Master PlanFormer College overflow housing can be used by the Seminary (losing 227/229)Fund through increased fees
13 Other Recommendations – Cont’d Explore adding parking lot adjacent to Sig Ep fraternityCreates approximately 25 additional spacesNOT consistent with Master Plan (this space has been designated as part of the Athletic Master Plan)Fund through increased fees
14 Other Recommendations – Cont’d Explore Remote Lot alternativesAffordable alternative for students who wish to “park” car for semesterShuttles must service remote lotsEquip lots with lighting, emergency phones, and cameras if permissiblePotentially limit sophomore parking to remote lots only
15 Remote Lots – Cont’d Current thoughts for remote lots: Those lots we own:Archives LotSteel Field lotThose Lots we do NOT own:35 E. Elizabeth Ave.City lotsHill-to-hill bridgeWest of entrance to Sand Island
16 Other Recommendations – Cont’d Encourage/Facilitate bicycle use on campusSurvey suggests interest in this areaMarket as a “green” alternativeMinimal investmentRacksStorage sheds
17 Other Recommendations – Cont’d Continue to explore ZipCar/Philly Car Share“for profit” vs. “not for profit” models are very differentLVAIC initiative?Determine the need for this based upon success of other alternatives
18 Other Recommendations – Cont’d Consider creating “Corral” on Hurd campusCurrently only done during community events, Celtic Fest, and KriskindlemartADVANTAGE: Immediate relief for Hurd campus creating approximately 60 spacesDISADVANTAGE: When BAM project occurs, perception may be that we are adding 220 residents and adding only 5 parking spaces (corral is replaced with parking lot with only 65 spaces)
19 Other Recommendations – Cont’d Fund future parking garageIncreased fees can be accumulated to fund future capital investment
