Parking Proposal

Dear President Boren and University of Oklahoma Regents:
Enclosed is a proposal that addresses our university’s minimum parking options for students who park in the parking garages and parking lots. My proposal portrays the major problem concerning the minimum of parking availability and provides a practical solution for the university.

The enclosed proposal suggests a solution for the University of Oklahoma to build parking garages on top of parking lots and/or build more parking garages closer to the buildings on campus where there are classes for students. Currently, students are required to pay a total of $195 for a parking permit for a whole year to park in certain areas in the campus even though a parking spot is not guaranteed. This proposal would help students be able to have more options on where to park and not have to spend thirty minutes or more looking for a parking spot before class. The benefits of my plan include more available parking spots, fewer car accidents, better attendance in classes, better overall grades in classes, fewer sicknesses, and fewer fines to be paid for parking illegally.

I hope that my proposal is received well and is considered thoroughly as a practical solution. Additional changes to the minimum of availability of parking places might help the campus be more desirable to students to attend, rather than being frustrated before even arriving to the university due to knowing there will be a good amount of time wasted searching for a parking spot to park in. Contact me by email, Stephanie.D.Everman-1@ou.edu at any convenience for you and thank you for looking over my proposal.

Sincerely,
Stephanie Everman (Student)

A Proposal to Build Additional Parking Garages
Submitted by Stephanie Everman (Student)
Problem
The problem with this university’s required parking permit of $195 that allows students to park in certain areas in the campus is that there are not enough parking places for students to park in even though students have already paid for a parking permit. There are a total of 1,300 parking places in the closest parking garages, Elm Avenue Parking Facility and Asp Avenue Parking Facility, with according to ou.edu, about 27,518 students that are enrolled into the university. The number of parking places available in the two parking garages and the number of students enrolled into the university does not match, making students have to wait thirty minutes or more searching for a parking spot. That amount of time searching for a parking place is equivalent to the time span of a television show. Having no place to park with a prepaid parking permit is frustrating to not only me, but to several other students in the university. Also, the parking garages that are the closest to the classrooms can still end up being ten to twenty minutes away, making students walk in all types of weather such as snow, sleet, rain, heat, and etc. Having students walk in all types of serious weather conditions makes students sick or dehydrated.

Proposed Solution
I propose that our university build additional parking garages that are closer to the classrooms and also build on to parking lots. Building on to the parking lots would...
