The Morehead State student government passed a resolution to create  an estimated 40 to 50 new parking spots for those with student passes.

The resolution stated that a parking lot would be placed between the Baptist Campus Ministry and the Palmer House. The lot adjacent to Cartmell would also be marked as student beginning in the Fall of 2019. 

To pay for the increase in lots, the resolution stated that those with a student pass will be charged an extra 10 dollars. 

 “I hate having to park all the way at Cartmell and then trek all the way to my dorm,” said 2019-2020 Vice President for Campus Involvement, Connor Tilford. 

The resolution also stated that beginning July 1, parking passes will be registered online instead of with campus police. The resolution, which differs from a bill in that a bill approves the transfer of money, was denied only by one member of the SGA senate, Alexander Pruitt. The resolution passed.

SGA president Brandon Bryer said the online system for parking would allow seniors to choose a pass first and freshmen last. He said it would also prevent freshmen from taking commuter passes that would otherwise be used by juniors or seniors.

“If someone has a problem with the cost increase, don’t park there,” said SGA senator CJ Hawkins. 

The resolution would be the first physical change made by the SGA since 2008 and would raise the price of a student parking pass.
