As students of UAB, we feel that parking has been a stressful constraint in our lives and we see the immediate need to have a new parking deck in a convenient location on campus for all students. Once our goal has been reached, the following petition will be delivered to Dr. Ray L. Watts, school president.

“Dear Dr. Watts,

Many students around campus are being negatively impacted by the lack of parking spaces. We recognize that our university is growing and many new facilities are being built. However, we have also noticed that parking is getting more complicated and difficult to find. The average time to locate parking is between one to two hours. Some students have express that actually miss classes because they are trying to find a place to park.Consequently, many students are forced to park in unauthorized spaces and as a result, numerous parking tickets have been issued, in some case creating a hardship for the affected student(s).

As students and members of the UAB community, we believethat parking is really expensive and we should be able to park in convenient locations where there is adequate parking. We appreciate that our school offers bus shuttles to the far away parking lots, but it is simply not convenient for many students. In hopes of resolving this issue, we are reverently petitioning to please supply us an additional parking deck.

A possible location to build this new deck could be right next to the Humanities building on the available green space. Many students have been complaining about this issue for a long time but none of the solutions presented by the parking office have been effective to this point. In addition, the local news talked about this issue but we feel our voices have been and are being completely ignored by the school administration.

Therefore, We are humbly and respectfully appealing to you Dr. Watts, to help us with this important matter. As students we need to be able to focus on our academics and the current parkingdilemma is becoming a highly stressful constraint in our scholar lives. In advance, we appreciate your time and consideration of this matter and are looking forward to hearing from you soon with a prompt and reasonable solution to our parking problems. 

 

Sincerely,

UAB Alumni”
