Improve Cary Quadrangle Resident Parking

This petition had 157 supporters

Cary Quadrangle residents and staff are facing a severe shortage of parking spaces near the dorm. Cary Quadrangle staff and residents are subject to towing multiple times each week due to our proximity to Purdue's athletic venues. This creates constant headaches for the staff and residents as we struggle to find open residential parking before each game. Without ample parking, many residents and staff are forced to park in spaces for which they do not hold permits for and are left with having to pay for tickets rather than a bill for being towed and impounded. Recent construction on Tower Drive to change the street into two-way traffic will result in the loss of street parking along the North side of Tower Drive. Purdue University and Purdue Parking Facilities also failed to notify residents and staff of the construction prior to the construction's start date. The planned expansion of the Ross-Ade Stadium's south end zone seating will also eliminate the only parking lot available to the residence hall, leaving students and staff few parking spaces only along John Wooden Drive (between Stadium Avenue and Tower Drive) and along the south side of Tower Drive (between John Wooden Drive and Beering Drive).

We ask that Purdue University, Purdue Parking Facilities, Purdue Student Government, and President Mitch Daniels work together to find a permanent and convenient solution to Cary Quadrangle's disproportionate residential and staff parking displacement in the form of new parking facilities for Cary Quadrangle that do not serve as spaces for university athletic events.
