City council alters street parking policy

City council alters street parking policy by David Lias The Vermillion City Council decided Monday to alter a street parking policy that has proven to be frustrating to students at The University of South Dakota.

The city currently has an odd/even parking policy in place south of Clark Street to Main Street and from Dakota to Plum streets.

The council decided to adopt a recommendation made last month by the city's Policy and Procedure Committee, and make the parking policy seasonal, from November through mid-March.

Aldermen also discussed another idea generated by the committee � to construct a parking lot in Prentis Park that would provide parking to the swimming pool in the summer and provide additional off-street parking to students residing in the nearby fraternity and sorority houses.

The aldermen agreed that more input would be needed � particularly on size, cost and funding � on the parking lot idea.
