Proposed Changes to Traffic & Parking Regulations

Posted on March 23, 2017

The Facility, Grounds & Safety Committee (FGSC) is charged with annually reviewing the University’s Traffic & Parking Regulations. The major changes the committee is recommending for implementation are as follows:

Permit Price Adjustments:

  • Semester-only General permit prices will change to be the same for each semester. Fall-only permits will increase from $80 to $85 and Spring-only will decrease from $90 to $85. This change would take effect for Fall 2017.

Summer & Holiday Parking in General Lots:

  • All General Parking lots (lot names that begin with a G) will not be ticketed in the summer and on all University holidays and breaks (all days when there are no classes and/or offices are closed). This change would take effect May 15, 2017.
  • Reserved Lots, Meters, and Handicapped areas will continue to have ticketing enforced year round.

If you have any feedback on the proposed changes, please send it to parking@mnstate.edu by Wednesday, April 5. Thank you for your continued support as we work to improve service and safety in our campus parking areas.
