MFRI Hosts National Fire Service Staff and Command School
A fire boat demonstration
at Baltimore 5 Inner Harbor
The Maryland Fire and Rescue
Institute at College Park recently con-
ducted its prominently recognized
Mational Fire Service Staff and Com-
mand School on March 28, 1993, at
the Sheraton Resort and Conference
Center, Ocean City, Maryland.
The objective of this elite program
was to assist emergency service lead-
ers in modern concepts of emergency
management by developing technical
skills and professional knowledge
through peer group activity.
This year's program, the largest in
the history of the institute, graduated
80 participants, many of whom were
chief officers of major fire service
organizations na tion wide.
Attendees included fire service
executives from Washington state,
New Mexico, Utah, Texas, Florida,
Connecticut, as well as Alberta and
Steven T. Edwards, director of
MFRI noted, "the ability to attract
such a diverse group of fire service
leaders from across the nation is a
tribute to the quality and reputation
of this course."
The National Fire Service Staff and
Command School is one of the pre-
miere professional development pro-
grams presented by the Maryland
Fire and Rescue Institute. This year's
topics focused on financial, person-
nel, and operations management pro-
cesses as they relate to managing
change within a dynamic fire service.
Faculty for the program included
Steve Martin, Winston-Salem, NC;
Construction Funding Update

With a total cost of S82 million, this is
likely to be one of the largest capital
projects in the university's history.
Construction is planned to begin in
New Health and Human
Through a split-funding formula,
the state has allocated S7.9 million
toward this $35.6 million project that
will house the College of Health and
Human Performance. Student fees
will pay for recreational facilities that
include indoor and outdoor pools,
gvmnasia, racquetball courts and an
indoor running track. Construction is
planned for next spring.
Intercollegiate Athletic Facilities
The state has approved $3 million
tenvards this program to raise stan-
dards of intercollegiate athletic facili-
ties so they are on a par with other
Atlantic Coast Conference institu-
tions. These funds must be matched
by private funds. The project has

Parking Fees Will Not Increase Next Year
Fees for on-campus parking per-
mits will not increase next year
despite future plans to build a new
parking garage. Although parking
fees generally rise as a result of antici-
pated construction costs (see related
article, this page), next year's fees will
remain the same because construc-
tion of a new garage has been post-
poned for at least a year.
Plans for a third parking garage
did prompt a rise in parking permit
fees last fall, however. Revenue
raised by that increase is being chan-
neled to a plant fund account and
will be used to help cover construc-
tion costs when the next garage is
Originally, construction crews
were slated to break ground on the
new garage in fall, 1994. The Depart-
ment of Campus Parking intended
the facility to replace parking spaces
lost as new buildings are located on
existing parking lots.
But the university has reduced its
projection of the number of lost park-
ing spaces due to recent changes in
University to Ease Evening Parking
The university will ease parking
for evening visitors and students
when Campus Parking begins to
phase in more liberal parking regula-
tions this summer.
Under the revised regulations,
parking permits will no longer be
required after 4 p.m. weekdays in the
university's unrestricted lots. Signs
reflecting the change will be posted at
the affected tots. Unrestricted lots
include the large lots between Tawes
Theatre and the University of Mary-
land University College Conference
Center, student parking lots, and the
faculty/staff areas within Parking
Garage #2, among others.
Restrictions on parking after 4
p.m., however, will continue for the
smaller internal lots near the center of
campus to assure adequate evening
parking tor faculty and staff.
The new regulations were made
possible through an agreement with
University College officials under
which the college will pay a flat fee to
the University of Maryland at College
Park for their students' parking privi-
leges rather than requiring University
College students to purchase UMCP
UMCP Director of Parking David
Allen says that the new regulations
are expected to be fully in place by
the start of the fall semester, but will
be phased in on a Iot-by-lot basis as
the revised signs are erected at each
lot. A new campus parking map
reflecting the change in regulations is
now in production.
Allen also notes that, even under
the more liberal regulations, vehicles
without permits parked in restricted
lots will continue to be ticketed and
parking meters will remain in opera-
tion until 10 p.m.
Campus Parking Raises Funds to Support Itself
"Where does all the money go?"
That question can be found on the
lips of many campus motorists pay-
ing for parking permits, feeding
meters or laying out cash for parking
All the money for campus parking
goes into providing parking for the
campus. Since the Department of
Campus Parking is a self support
auxiliary program, it must therefore
raise all the revenue needed to main-
tain its operation. Along with other
such departments as Resident Life,
Communication Services and the
Stamp Student Union, Campus Park-
ing receives no income from state
budget appropriations or other cam-
So operating expenses must come
from other sources — namely, campus
motorists. Individuals parking on
campus cover the operating costs of
Campus Parking in three ways (see
graph): parking permit fees, parking
meter income, and fines for illegal
parking. Campus Parking then uses
all that money to pay for lot mainte-
nance, supplies, payroll and, perhaps
most significantly, construction.
Thus, when the operating budget
of Campus Parking increases, park-
ing fees also rise. If, for example, the
need for additional or replacement
parking requires building another
parking garage, fees may increase to
pay the debt charges that go along
That scenario occurred last fall
when Campus Parking increased per-
mit fees in anticipation of building a
third parking garage. Construction
of that facility has been postponed,
however, and permit fees will remain
constant next year (see related article,
campus development plans. The
most significant such change
involved relocation of the new per-
forming arts center from a site on
Lot 1 to a site between Lot 1 and
University Boulevard, south of the
Denton Residential Complex.
For the 1 993-94 academic year,
parking permit fees will remain at
their current levels of $109 for fac-
ulty and staff; $95 for resident stu-
dents; and $51 for commuter
students. Next year Campus Park-
ing will, if needed, use spending
cuts to cover increased operational
costs or reductions in meter and
parking fine income.
Barring a change in Campus
Parking's self support funding sta-
tus, parking permit fees will proba-
bly go up when the need for
additional parking prompts con-
struction of a new garage. Campus
Parking has not determined the
exact date such a garage will be
built but announced it will be
delayed as long as possible.
Campus Parking may try to
cushion the blow of significant
parking fee hikes, related to the
garage, by spreading the increases
over a number of years (for exam-
ple, $20 a year for three or four
years). Others have suggested, on
the other hand, a single increase of
between $80 and $100 when garage
construction begins. To express
your preference between these two
alternatives, call Campus Parking
at 314-7179 or write to the Campus
Affairs Committee of the Campus
Senate at 1100 Marie Mount Hall.
DCP Cash flow
As campus motorists are well
aware, lanes and spaces have
shrunk due to construction on
and off campus. The December
14, 1992 OUTLOOK reported on
the Prince George's County pro-
ject to relocate Calvert Road east
of Route 1 to prepare for the new
College Park Metro station sched-
uled to open in December 1993.
This special insert is designed
to inform readers of the changes
the university is making to many
of its own traffic routes to prepare
for the new metro station.
A detailed map showing the
new campus traffic patterns,
based on the Campus Facilities
Master Plan, appears on the fol-
Since commuting is more than
driving, we've also included rele-
vant information about campus
parking news and policies. A
comparison of peer and local
institutions as well as a report on
how Campus Parking gets and
spends its money appears on page

cerns you may want to attend the
May 6 open forum on parking

Plan sponsored by the Campus
Affairs Committee of the Campus
Senate. See page six for details.

A new traffic signal and entrance
will provide access to both the UMCP
west campus/ parking Lot 1 area and
the expanded facilities at the UMUC
Conference Center. The shared west
entrance road is the first segment of
what is planned to be a north /south
connection in the west campus area
of Lot 1 . Funding has been requested
in the UMCP capital budget to com-
plete this much-needed primary road
within the next few years.
Construction of UMUC's new 800
space parking garage and the Student
and Faculty Services Building provid-
ed the opportunity to construct a sin-
gle shared entrance off of Campus
Drive. While the road will be
designed and constructed to provide
primary service to the College Park
campus, it will also be a major access
to the University College facilities.
North Gate Entrance
The university's North Gate on
Route 1 will be redeveloped next year
to align with the Prince George's
County relocation of Calvert Road,
The project will involve the following
1) Construction of a new entrance
road. The old entrance will become a
pedestrian and cyclist pathway.
2) Construction of a new segment
of Paint Branch Drive east of the A.V.
3) Improving existing roads/ con-
ditions in the vicinity of the Agricul-
ture/Life Science Surge Building to
provide a connection between the
new segment of Paint Branch Drive
and Regents Drive.
4) Providing a one-way traffic pat-
tern from the North Gate northbound
to the new intersection on existing
Paint Branch Drive.
5) Making Regents Drive one-way
south from the intersection with Sta-
dium Drive south to the traffic circle.
The road between PG2 and Lot OO
will be temporarily closed for con-
struction of the new Plant Sciences
Building on Lot OO.
6) Making Campus Drive one-way
east, redesigning one of the three
travel lanes for alternate use.
7) Closing Campus Drive between
Lots HH and H.
The design development process,
anticipated to be completed by
December 1993, is being managed by
the Department of Engineering and
Architectural Services. Work has
been initiated and the campus com-
munity will be involved in the design
review at various times throughout

Open Forum on Campus Parking and Planning Set for May 6
An open forum to address campus parking and the new traffic patterns in the
North Gate and University College areas is set for May 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the
Maryland Room of Marie Mount Hall. The forum, which is sponsored by the
Campus Affairs Committee of the Campus Senate, will include representatives
from Administrative Affairs and the Department of Campus Parking to answer
questions and provide background. To reserve time for your specific ques-
tions, call the Campus Senate Office at 405-5805.
Comparing College Park's Parking with Other Institutions
REGISTERED FM PARKIHS
FACULTY/STAFF REGISTERED FOR PARKING
Recently, the Department of Cam-
pus Parking conducted a survey of 12
local and peer institutions' parking
policies to see how College Park com-
pares. Some of the results are as fol-
" College Park has the fourth low-
est parking fees for faculty and staff
at $109 per year. Towson's $37 per
year is the lowest fee; George Wash-
ington's $1,116 per year is the high-
est. Other institutions include the
University of Michigan at Dearborn
($72/year), University of Texas at
Austin ($120/year) and UMAB
Several institutions have a faculty
fee higher than the staff fee. They
include Ohio State at Columbus
($168/$84 per year), Johns Hopkins
($264/$132 per year) and the Univer-
sity of Michigan at Ann Arbor
($286/ $63 per year).
• Student fees range from a low of
$13 per year (UT-Austin) to a high of
$134 per month (GW). College Park
charges a yearly fee of $51 for com-
muting students and $95 for resi-
dents, which is less than six other
institutions, all of whom charge on a
semester or daily basis.
• Half of the institutions have
three or fewer parking garages, with
the University of Minnesota's 10
being the most. Ohio State (Colum-
bus) and University of Michigan
(Ann Arbor) have eight each.
• College Park's 1600 parking
meters just top Ann Arbor's 1575.
Three institutions have no meters,
with the rest averaging about 200.
• Ten institutions (including Col-
lege Park) have campus shuttles. All
but one have municipal transportation.
• Seven institutions (including
College Park) have carpool/ride
