"The existing parking facilities at the University of Missouri - Rolla are presently inadequate and parking demand will continue to increase in the coming years. Factual study of existing conditions by means of physical vehicle counts indicate that operational efficiency can be increased as a method of reducing the parking shortage. It was determined, by a faculty and staff questionnaire, that the automobile was not greatly required in order to carry out university business. A faculty residence density study indicated that the majority of the faculty members live farther than 7/10 of a mile from the campus. Present methods of coping with parking shortages lie in reduction of the demand by restrictive measures, or by an earnest attempt to supply the needs by way of: 1. Expansion of existing facilities, 2. Purchase of new facilities, 3. Construction of parking structures. The University of Missouri - Rolla can supply its parking needs through lot expansion and efficient utilization of existing facilities--Abstract, Page ii.
