Thread: Lots of changes while students were away

    Default Re: Lots of changes while students were away

    My son is a student at Auburn and he has made the decision to not get a parking pass this year. But them he can just walk less than 50 feet from his off campus apartment and ride Tiger Transit to campus every school day till 8:00 PM every day. After 8:00 Tiger Transit will only pick up on campus and deliver off campus. If he drive to campus he drives his bicycle.

    You can see on the map that the area directly across veterans from the entrance is almost all wetland area so I'm not sure how they are planning to extend a road across veterans into the swamp. They could always get a permit to remove the wetland but that is a very expensive and lengthy thing to do.

    Yes, I realize a Master Plan always has some aspects that are either shelved or redone, but I don't think the Akin's extension will change much, if at all.

    It's not like they all of a sudden realized the land has some mitigation issues they may need address.

    IIRC there are wetlands behind Carroll and COBA, they may find ways to incorporate some into the South Campus plan, and then only buy offsets or whatever for a smaller portion. Also, i believe there was about $4 Million in the state budget this past fiscal year for infrastructure over there, I personally have no idea what or how much that will get you, but the funds were allocated.

    That is my point. They know what is on that property. Part of the Master Plan calls for a greenway extension & trails, and I'm absolutely certain they've already done hydraulic surveys.

    I have no doubts that the Armstrong consolidation has altered plans but it may just be reordering precedence of projects and things of that magnitude. I'm sure before an inch of dirt is turned the appropriate environmental impact will have been completed.

    I'm a current GS student and I park at Paulson and catch the bus. Parking pass is expensive and also I got a ticket two years ago I refuse to pay off.

    If I'm not mistaken any outstanding tickets must be paid off before you graduate.

    I honestly used to park in the lot between Education and IT and I would back in so nobody could see if I had a pass or not. I would only get caught maybe 4-5 times a year and have to pay a $25 ticket each time but it was still cheaper to just get parking tickets and pay them off than it was to buy a $160 parking pass. Now you can't do that anymore thanks to the parking nazi technology they have now.

    Who would waste time taking their tag on and off?
    you underestimate the power of the college students mind.....Back in the day, $160 would have bought alot of beer at The Knights, The Flame, or at Johnson's!

    Yes, shame on them for changing to stop people from circumventing the rules...
