NOTICE OF PARKING RESTRICTIONS FOR THIRD-FRIDAY MEETINGS
You will need to park in the yellow zones, car pool spaces, or at meters while attending the Friday evening meetings. Current University policy allows red zone parking only for University red zone permit holders. We have requested an exception to the policy, but University action on this request is still pending. At this point, the red zone restriction is in force. Violators are subject to receiving University parking tickets, which carry $35 fines.
The nearest yellow zone spaces are on Forsyth Blvd. and in front of the greenhouses, two buildings west (away from Forest Park) of McDonnell Hall. The greenhouse lot has both red and yellow zone parking, so be sure that you are not in a posted red zone. Meter spaces are free after 6 p.m. Car pool spaces are marked and available after 2 p.m. Should all of these spaces be filled, you will find the nearest yellow zone spaces about a quarter-mile west, by the Business School's Olin Hall, or a quarter-mile east, behind the Steinberg Art Gallery.
Handicap Parking is exempt from the above rules.
