ATTENTION
Game Day Parking

Football-closed-lots---Revised_11_2014

During all home football games, the Resident Remote lot on Curry Court and the lots around Belk-Health and Human Performance will be closed and designated for the NON-STUDENT Pirate Club. To accommodate the lot's D permit holders, Parking and Transportation will allow these D permit holders to park in other lots/zones. ALL cars must begin relocating starting at 3pm on Friday, November 21, 2014. All cars must be out of the Curry Court lot by 7pm Friday, November 21, 2014. All cars must be out of these lots by the appropriate time stated above for each lot, or they will be relocated by a towing establishment. D permits may park in any A or B zone on main campus. Exceptions are indicated in red on the map above - these areas will be reserved for ADA (handicapped) accommodation and the STUDENT Pirate Club during the game.

If you are a member of the STUDENT Pirate Club and have a D permit, you still have to move your car out of the Curry Court lot since that lot is reserved for the Non-Student Pirate Club. You will relocate your car to the Student Pirate Club lot at the bottom of College Hill that is indicated in the appropriate red area on the map above. There is a separate Student Pirate Club permit that is required to be displayed in order to park in the reserved Student Pirate Club lot on the bottom of College Hill. This permit is NOT given to Student Pirate Club members by our office. These permit must be obtained from the Athletics Department and are subject to sell out prior to the game. The Student Pirate Club's number is 737-4540.

As always, students also cannot park in any other reserved, ADA spaces (handicapped spaces) unless authorized by our office, maintenance/service areas, and no parking zones or fire zones.

All faculty/staff and students must return to their respective zones by 7am Monday, November 24, 2014.

NOTIFICATION OF PARKING ADJUSTMENTS

In August of this year, you received an email notifying you of some parking adjustments we made to the areas surrounding the Carol Belk Building and Curry Court due to demand. Since then, we have transitioned some of the D-permit holders to other zones. This has resulted in a return to adequate spaces being available in the primary D-zone lot. In response to this return to normal circumstances, we are reverting some lots back to their original zone designations. The changes are reflected on the maps below. The map on the left shows the expansions we did to the area back in August. The map on the right shows the reversion. These changes are effective immediately. Please feel free to call our office at 328-6294 or email us at parking@ecu.edu if you should have any questions/concerns.

BFU Silver award

EXCITING NEWS!

East Carolina University has been named a Silver Bicycle Friendly University (BFU) by the League of American Bicyclists! With the announcement of 33 new and renewing BFUs in 20 states, East Carolina University joins a cutting-edge group of colleges and universities from across the United States transforming their campuses and the communities around them. There are now 100 BFUs in 37 states and Washington, D.C.

"Campus leaders are recognizing the real-time and long term impact that a culture of bicycling can create," said Andy Clarke, President of the League of American Bicyclists. "We applaud this new round of colleges and universities for investing in a more sustainable future for the country and a healthier future for their staff, students and surrounding communities."

In working with the Master Plan, East Carolina University has made great strides in developing a safer environment for our pedestrians and bicyclists with the closure of roads throughout the heart of campus and the construction of our beautiful new bike paths that run from Wright Circle to Joyner Library. Over the next several years, we will continue to encourage bicycling as an easy option for transportation. We will implement more amenities such as Sharrows, covered bike racks, more bike paths and extensions to the Greenway. For a more detailed list of upcoming projects, please feel free to view East Carolina University's Campus Bicycle Master Plan on this website: http://www.ecu.edu/bikes/bikemasterplan.html. Moving forward, East Carolina University will have access to a variety of free tools and technical assistance from the League to become even more bicycle-friendly. When colleges and universities invest in bicycling, great things happen: decreased carbon foot print, reduced health care costs, connection to the community and a fun and healthy campus culture.
