As many of you are aware, an unsafe condition exists as students, faculty, and staff attempt to cross the street on Goulden Avenue to access the South Parking Lot. The condition is being created by a constant flow of double-parked cars that impede both vehicular and pedestrian movement in the area.
To alleviate this condition, the Public Safety Department will issue “double-parking Summons”. Our intention with this initiative is not to cause inconvenience to any member of the College Community but rather to provide a safer environment in that area.
Please be advised that failure to pay parking violations summonses may result in the revocation of your campus parking privileges, deactivation of your dual card and, for students a negative service indicator will be placed on your CUNYfirst account. Anyone who repeatedly violates College parking regulations will forfeit their privilege of using the College parking facilities, and will be reported to the proper College authorities.
