PARKING FACILITY PROJECTIONS BASED ON THE 1968 STUDENT PARKING SURVEY.
DALBY, J. PHILIP; KENDRA, LAWRENCE M.
RESPONSES FROM 1,309 STUDENTS AND 121 CAMPUS EMPLOYEES AT CUYAHOGA COMMUNITY COLLEGE WERE USED TO PROJECT REQUIREMENTS FOR PARKING FACILITIES AT THE INSTITUTION BY 1971. STUDENTS INDICATED WHETHER OR NOT THEY CURRENTLY DROVE TO SCHOOL AND, IF NOT, IF THEY WOULD INTEND TO DRIVE IF PARKING FACILITIES WERE PROVIDED AT A NOMINAL FEE. FINDINGS SHOWED THAT (1) 70 PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS DROVE TO SCHOOL, (2) 69 PERCENT OF THE CAMPUS EMPLOYEES DROVE TO SCHOOL, (3) 61 PERCENT NEVER LEFT AND RETURNED TO THE CAMPUS BY CAR THE SAME DAY, (4) 30 PERCENT SOMETIMES LEFT AND RETURNED BY CAR THE SAME DAY, (5) 3 PERCENT ALWAYS LEFT AND RETURNED BY CAR THE SAME DAY, (6) 63 PERCENT PARKED IN PRIVATE OR MUNICIPAL LOTS, (7) 11 PERCENT WERE NOT WILLING TO DRIVE AT ALL, AND (8) 85 PERCENT WOULD DRIVE TO SCHOOL EACH DAY IF PARKING FACILITIES WERE PROVIDED AT A NOMINAL FEE. IT WAS ESTIMATED THAT 7,440 PARKING SPACES WERE REQUIRED FOR STUDENTS WITH 10,248 SPACES BEING NEEDED BY 1971, AND THAT 207 SPACES WERE NEEDED FOR CAMPUS EMPLOYEES WITH 261 SPACES NEEDED BY 1971. BY USE OF FORMULAS BASED ON THE EXPECTED AMOUNT OF TIME SPENT ON CAMPUS BY STUDENTS AND CAMPUS EMPLOYEES, SPACE REQUIREMENTS FOR PARKING FACILITIES WERE TABULATED WITH THE RESULTS INDICATING CURRENT PARKING REQUIREMENTS OF 2,780 SPACES AND THE PROJECTED FULL UTILIZATION DEMAND SLIGHTLY EXCEEDING 3,800 SPACES FOR 6,000 FTE DAY STUDENTS.
