Marching Chiefs Deserve Game-Day Parking

This petition had 3,387 supporters

As Marching Chiefs, we are expected to be on campus typically 4-5 hours before kick off to partake in our traditional “Continuity Rehearsal” that takes place on Bill Harkin’s Field. It has become cumbersome, to say the least, to park in any non-booster garage, to trek across campus with our uniforms, instruments, change of clothes, water, and food for the day, to begin our game day traditions. We are the only performing organization at these games who do not have guaranteed parking which leads to many of our students either Ubering from home, walking long distances, or parking off campus simply to get to the game.  I am petitioning for the possibility of Marching Chiefs to be granted fair parking since it is indeed our requirement to be present in these games. I understand that the Booster Lots generate income for Florida State and I will propose the possibility to have a $20 “Marching Chief” parking pass for a predetermined lot closer to the site. The newly built lot where Kellum Dorm once was is a perfect opportunity to be given to Marching Chiefs before it can be made into a new booster lot for the 2018 season. Again, we believe that it is unfair to be expected to make appearances at every single home game when we continually face the challenge of parking.
