FB.04.03 Resolution on Parking Policies
Whereas, In many institutions and industries, parking is offered to
employees at no cost or at considerably lower rates than at UIUC; and
Whereas, Any changes in parking fees should continue the policy of
generating current levels of revenues for maintaining such facilities; and
Whereas, Vehicles housed in parking structures enjoy year round
protection from the elements as opposed to those parked in open lots; and
Whereas, It is necessary for many faculty and staff to park in close
proximity to the building where they work to be able to take care of their
children, run errands, among others, and since there are large differences in
resolved by the UIUC Senate that
1.Rates for any parking plan be set to only generate the current total parking fee revenue.
2. Parking in structures be at a higher rate than outside parking.
3.Differential parking rates, in three or four tiers, based on annual faculty, academic professional and staff incomes be initiated.
4.Parking fees not be based on proximity.
