Faculty and staff who switched their campus parking spots Tuesday reported few hurdles, says Laurie Butler-Grondin, manager of parking services.
She was on hand in the new parking garage through most of the morning, greeting employees who took up their new assignments, handing out coffee and cookies. Other parking services staffers did the same at the entrances to S and Q lots.
“We wanted to make the transition as smooth as possible,” she said. “I have been here to address any concerns, but so far I haven’t heard of any major challenges.”
Hundreds of permit holders saw a change in their parking spot assignments as a result of the closure of several lots to accommodate the reconstruction of Sunset Avenue as a pedestrian esplanade from Wyandotte Street north to the Education Building.
