for parking garage on indefinite hold
By Kelly Morris
parking concerns, a 450- to 600-spot parking garage has been put
on hold indefinitely, said Carol Campbell, vice chancellor for finance
garage was discussed at the November Board of Trustees meeting,
but the Board deferred any further action on it at this time,
Campbell said. Personally, I would be surprised to see it
back on the agenda again this academic year.
one of the reasons the Board deferred the project was because of
the $5.5 million to $7.5 million price tag of the proposed parking
high cost at a time when the endowment has lost market value was
a major consideration, she said.
the endowment was its highest during March 2000 at $1 billion. As
of Sept. 30, the most recent quarterly figures available, the endowment
was about $ 850 million, down 15 percent, she said.
