South Lot sprawl

Complaining about the parking situation at UAA is, well, low hanging fruit — but something has been hanging over my head about the state of asphalt in the UAA South Parking Lot.

The construction site for the new engineering building is swallowing up the South Parking Lot with chain link fence that seems to inch out towards the Student Union week by week. Two or three large pickup trucks are parked neatly within the construction site that appears to be large, relatively empty and sprawling.

Is anyone on campus culling the construction contractor’s requests to gobble up what seems to be an inordinate parcel of primo parking? I think it is reasonable that the relevant UAA administration advocate for construction contractors to contain their mess.
Managing our already-depleted parking spaces efficiently keeps campus accessible and paid parking worth substantial out-of-pocket cost.
