Rayna Cooper started this petition to Oneonta City Council and

Hello everyone, 

My name is Rayna Cooper and I am a student at the State University of New York, College at Oneonta living off campus.

Today, I attended and participated in the Oneonta City Council meeting to bring up the student parking situation downtown and my concern for women’s safety. 

Although I was able to voice my concern, as many of us know, it takes much more than one persons actions to bring about change. 

When it is late at night, it is much easier to park in the lot right next to my apartment building, so I have a shorter and safer walk home. However, once it is 8am the next morning the lot becomes 2 hour parking and students that live in my STUDENT rental building frequently are ticketed. 

There are no 24 hour parking spots nearby and the garage parking lot is not a safe option late at night (a woman was assaulted and killed in that garage in the past.) The Courtcase: https://www.leagle.com/decision/19921091186ad2d9051114

The rental company or the city council should at least provide the tenants of the student apartment buildings with sticker passes, if they are unable to make the lot 24 hour parking as a whole. 

Although I will be graduating in May and leaving Oneonta, I am still concerned about the next tenants that will be living in my building and will have to deal with the parking and safety issue. 

Please sign this petition so we can work to make Oneonta safer and better for all of us.
