KissedGrits saw wasted space and had a logical response. Way to think, KG. It's a valid question and a great idea. All that needs doing is to move the line over which separates student and faculty parking. Wasted space when space is limited is not making the most of your resources. It's quite silly to do something simply because that's the way you've always done it.
Imagine this same question regarding the parking lot at your place of business. A line separates upper level employee parking from lower. Many spaces in upper level parking are not utilized. If upper level parking is minimized, a greater percentage of lower level employees can park closer to the front door. I would offer that as a more logical plan whether I were upper or lower level on the employee chain.
Regardless if I were faculty or student at UNA, I would offer this as a more logical plan.
