The University of ___________
Parking Deck Project
Principals of Planning
The University of ________________ has been confronted with claims of parking shortages over the past several years. Many of these claims were not supported by any facts or figures that explained the cause of the parking shortages. In fact, some of the claims of insufficient parking were based on students not being able to locate parking spaces in the parking lots adjacent to their first class. Due to recent and projected enrollment increases, there now exist a genuine parking shortage. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to evaluate the current parking, plan for future parking needs, and propose possible locations for increased parking spaces at the University of ______________.
The 1996 enrollment for the University of ______________ is 4,960. The enrollment increased approximately twelve (12) students from the 1995 enrollment. There are currently 2,303 total parking spaces on University property. The University Master Plan recommends one parking space for every 1.8 students. The student enrollment, (divided by) the number of students per parking space, (equals) the number of recommended parking spaces.
1996 Enrollment ........................ 4,960
Students Per Parking Space......... / 1.8 (Divided by)
Recommended Parking Spaces... = 2,756
Recommended Parking Spaces.. 2,756
Current Parking Spaces.............. - 2,303 (Minus)
Shortage of Parking Spaces...... = 453
The number of Students Per Parking Space ( 1.8 ) is based on a national average of University parking. This formula shows that the University is currently deficient 453 parking spaces.
The existing parking areas are positioned at various locations on the campus of the University. These parking lots vary in size from 6 to 294 spaces. Many of the parking areas are located in the heart of the University. This allows for easy accessibility but it takes away from the aesthetic beauty of the campus. The existing parking areas also cause traffic congestion in their immediate area. The majority of the parking lots are located on streets that have limited access or the exits do not allow for an easy transition into existing streets.
Planning for the future growth of the University of __________________ is essential when assessing its future parking needs. The University of North Alabama Master Plan must be taken into consideration when planning for the future. The Master Plan proposes many changes for the overall improvement of the University.(See Figure 2) These improvements include dramatic changes in the existing parking facilities of the University. The physical changes that have been proposed by the Master Plan must be used in conjunction with demographic data in order to provide a user friendly and beautiful campus.
The University Master Plan proposes many creative ideas for the future of the University. These ideas, if enacted, would cause the campus to be more aesthetically pleasing and efficient. The University Master Plan contains plans to remove and redesign much of the internal parking on the campus. Parking spaces in the following areas would be eliminated: Wesleyan Ave., Morrison Ave., parking lot K, parking lot E, and parking lot H. (see Figure 1) There will be a total of approximately 400 parking spaces that will need to be relocated in order to conform to the Master Plan. These lost parking spaces must be accommodated in another location. The number of lost parking spaces when added to the existing parking shortage will result in a parking space deficiency of over 800. This will cause a substantial parking shortage in the near future if plans are not quickly enacted.
Projected enrollment must be taken into consideration, in order to make sure that the University has adequate facilities for the students and faculty. The University Admissions Office is projecting an enrollment increase of 347 over the next five (5) years. (This figure was derived from the formula used earlier in the study). This increase, when added to the existing parking shortage, would result in the deficiency of 645 parking spaces. Five (5) years is a relatively short period of time and the parking problems will only compound in the future.
After conforming to the Master Plan and planning for enrollment growth the University will be deficient over 1000 spaces. These figures are overwhelming. This is why an appropriate plan must be reviewed and approved as soon as possible.
Now that the parking needs of the University have

Informative Speech For Gun OwnershipInformative Speech For Gun Ownership Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used and that definite rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of the citizen to bear arms is just one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be
RapeRape Here is a number for you: 354,670. That is the number of women that were raped in 1995 (RAINN 1). That is equivalent of one woman being raped every two minutes (RAINN 1). Want more numbers? “In the last two years, more than 787,000 women were the victim of a rape or sexual assault” (RAINN 1). And one more statistic that might get your attention is that only 37% of rapes are reported to the authorities (RAINN 2). Fortunately, there are ways to drastically reduce these numbers.
