1 Parking at Moravian College Presented by The Parking Task Force

2 The Charge for the Task Force The Parking Task Force is charged with developing recommendations for ways to respond to the parking challenges associated with (1) the proposed Hurd Campus project and (2) a campus of 1600 students.

3 Your Parking Task Force Anne Dutlinger Blair Flintom Mark Reed (Co-Chair) Rena Sinerco Jim Skalnik Candi Stoudt Sean Tallarico (Co-Chair) David Weber Bob Windolph

4 Recommendations from the Task Force Two categories of recommendations: –Must Dos –Other Recommendations for consideration

5 The Must Dos Enhanced shuttle service North Only / South Only parking tags Three tier pricing structure for parking tags Designated Visitor Parking on Hurd Campus

6 Enhance Shuttle Service Addition of 3 rd shuttle –Already part of the operating cost assumptions with BAM housing –Include at least one EXPRESS shuttle –Shuttle will need to service remote lots Create inviting environment to ride –Courteous drivers –Predictable service Possibility of outsourcing –Being done at Kutztown

7 North / South Hang Tags Hang tags will have a North/South designation –Eliminates resident students commuting from North campus to Hurd campus –Designation will NOT apply to employees (residents only)

8 North / South Hang Tags – contd –Designate spaces on existing Foy Hall lot Resident Only spaces Faculty/Staff spaces 3 Admissions Visitor spaces 3 General Visitor spaces 1 Handicap space Designated spaces facilitate snow removal

9 Three Tier Pricing Three Tiers –On Campus Premium - $300/yr 71 spaces - W. Laurel & Geissinger/Laurel –On Campus - $150/yr 211 (current) spaces - All other on campus resident lots except Archives and Steel Field –On Street and Remote Lots - $50/yr License to hunt for street parking and access to remote lots

10 Three Tier Pricing – contd Offers affordable option for those who demonstrate a need for a car on campus –Student teaching –Clinicals Creates approximately $50K per year of incremental revenue –Fund 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 access –Provide 3 designated spaces in Foy lot Creative alternatives to provide spaces for other visitors: –Widows House –Central Moravian –Others?

12 Other Recommendations for Consideration Extend Lot B to Iron Street –Assumes 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 spaces –Consistent with Master Plan –Former College overflow housing can be used by the Seminary (losing 227/229) –Fund through increased fees

13 Other Recommendations – Contd Explore adding parking lot adjacent to Sig Ep fraternity –Creates approximately 25 additional spaces –NOT consistent with Master Plan (this space has been designated as part of the Athletic Master Plan) –Fund through increased fees

14 Other Recommendations – Contd Explore Remote Lot alternatives –Affordable alternative for students who wish to park car for semester –Shuttles must service remote lots –Equip lots with lighting, emergency phones, and cameras if permissible –Potentially limit sophomore parking to remote lots only

15 Remote Lots – Contd Current thoughts for remote lots: –Those lots we own: Archives Lot Steel Field lot –Those Lots we do NOT own: 35 E. Elizabeth Ave. City lots –Hill-to-hill bridge –West of entrance to Sand Island

16 Other Recommendations – Contd Encourage/Facilitate bicycle use on campus –Survey suggests interest in this area –Market as a green alternative –Minimal investment Racks Storage sheds

17 Other Recommendations – Contd Continue to explore ZipCar/Philly Car Share –for profit vs. not for profit models are very different –LVAIC initiative? –Determine the need for this based upon success of other alternatives

18 Other Recommendations – Contd Consider creating Corral on Hurd campus –Currently only done during community events, Celtic Fest, and Kriskindlemart –ADVANTAGE: Immediate relief for Hurd campus creating approximately 60 spaces –DISADVANTAGE: 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 – Contd Fund future parking garage –Increased fees can be accumulated to fund future capital investment


21 Summer 2007 Begin to enhance shuttle service Determine number of permits to issue/criteria for: –On Campus Premium –On Campus –Basic Registration Finalize the number and location of designated spaces in Foy lot Finalize use for Steel Field / Archives lots.
