Interim parking policy and comment period announced

President Kelley signed interim UND policy 2.27, Parking, on August 26. While this policy is new, it specifically outlines parking processes and procedures that have been in place for some time. During this interim phase the policy will be used to handle parking-related issues; and students, faculty and staff may participate in a campus-wide comment period. The campus-wide comment period for the Parking policy will be held Aug. 29 – Sept. 30. This process will allow for complete campus feedback and additional policy revision as necessary.

Note: In accordance with North Dakota State Board of Higher Education policy 305.1.4(h) all interim policies are to be presented to President’s Cabinet no later than six months after initial approval for review and decision. That stated, the interim Parking policy will return to President’s Cabinet for review and final action by the President on or before Feb. 26, 2014.

Policy Statement: Any motorized vehicle operated on the property of the University of North Dakota is subject to all regulations governing parking at the institution. All campus parking may be restricted to vehicles with permits which authorize parking in that area or where the pay-as-you-go fee has been paid. Parking enforcement is conducted year-round, 24 hours per day.

Reason for Policy: The regulation of parking is a service to the University, and is intended to protect student, staff, and faculty pedestrian mobility; use available parking space in the best interests of the entire University; and maximize parking area consistent with land needs for the academic function, topography, financial feasibility, and maintenance of the natural beauty of the campus.
