I get caught up in an issue of PT and sometimes can’t see the forest for the trees. Today I was sending our cover boy Tad McDowell at UNLV a ‘link’ to the on line magazine (he hasn’t gotten his copy yet and he was getting calls about his abfab cover pix) when I click on the magazine and wow, this is a great issue with universities, and other stories of interest, to wit:
- The Gang at the University of Texas talks about why parking is unique at universities
- A consultant from Montgomery County, MD, gives his opinion about parking minimums and our “third rail.”
- We venture into construction and whether its better to repair or replace a garage
- There’s a story about security in parking facilities and the technology driving it at DePaul in Chicago.
- Doug Holmes discusses 30 years in parking, plus hams it up with a Nittany Lion.
- Danny Ho at the University of BC takes an international view of higher ed parking
- David Burr expands on Clark Kerr’s quote that “universities are a series of individual faculty entrepreneurs held together by a common grievance over parking”
- Melissa, our Amateur Parker, talks about how much harder it is to park a ‘new’ car.
- And of course I get to rail on about the REAL reason our economy is in the tank, and beat up on LEED a bit.
- Plus three pages of parking gossip, tons of blog posts for the internet challenged, and 30 pages of advertising, supporting PT’s lavish lifestyle.
I suggest, if you haven’t, you go here and check out PT September. You will be glad you did.
