Commuter parking permits clarification
April 15, 2015
A couple of factual errors were found in Christine Marriott’s April 3 story, titled “Street parking for students is problematic,” in relation to the new off-campus parking permits which will be implemented in the fall.
According to UW-River Falls Chief of Police Karl Fleury, the commuter parking permit is entirely different than the 24-hour parking permit. The commuter permit, at a cost of $129, is not valid overnight. The 24-hour permit, at a cost of $308, will allow the permit holder to park overnight.
These two passes are valid for the Hunt Arena and Knowles Center parking lot. Ongoing construction to the parking lot will be finished before the fall 2015 semester begins.
Also, the parking office is not located in South Hall; it’s located in 103 Regional Development Institute at 715 Wild Rose Ave.
