Reminder to Carpool: Lot L to Close Permanently Tomorrow, November 14
After months of planning and preparation, construction is about to get under way on Buffalo State’s new student housing project. This new 507-bed apartment-style dormitory, to be located on Lot L, is scheduled for a spring 2011 completion. It will meet our increasing need for on-campus housing at Buffalo State.
To accommodate construction-site preparation, Lot L will be permanently removed from service tomorrow, Saturday, November 14. The recent addition of 159 parking spaces in Lot R and the soon-to-be-completed 411-space expansion of Lot M will more than make up for the loss of 433 spaces in Lot L.
Stanley Kardonsky, vice president for finance and management, is asking everyone on campus to be patient in the coming weeks as students, faculty, and staff adjust to the new parking configuration.
“The removal of Lot L from service will undoubtedly require some adjustment on the part of our students, faculty, and staff,” said Kardonsky. “Once the expansion of Lot M is complete, which should be within a few weeks, there will be ample parking available on campus. However, during the brief transition period before Lot M expansion is finished, we encourage everyone to arrive to campus early and consider carpooling or use of public transportation, as parking spaces, especially in student lots, will be at a premium.”
