Does FJC need a 4-Story Parking Structure?


February 14, 2017- Just two weeks into the semester starting in Spring 2017, at approximately 8:30 a.m, plenty of parking spaces are still available. Shouldn’t the lots be totally full at that hour so early into the semester? The college does not need to build an additional 4-story parking structure to gain a total 630 spaces and which would require the addition of two traffic signals on Berkley Ave. The cost of the project does not outweigh the benefits. How about the college invest in something unique? Perhaps mass transportation directly to the school’s front door- some cool, unique way of getting to school that doesn’t involve more automobiles and would be beneficial to both students and neighbors. Remember Joni Mitchell: They paved paradise and put up a parking lot. Don’t be like that song Greg Stallz (Schulz)
Available spaces just 2 weeks after classes started for Spring 2017 classes. The school does not need another 4-story parking structure on campus. Students always and forever will park on Berkeley Ave. for free.

Empty parking stalls at Fullerton Junior College February 14, 2017 at approximately 8:33 a.m- just two weeks after classes started for the Spring semester. Shouldn’t all the spaces be full just two weeks into a new semester?

A 4-story parking structure that will net just 630 new parking spaces and require the addition of two new traffic signals on Berkeley Ave is both ludicrous and unnecessary. It’s difficult not to notice empty parking spaces at Fullerton College a mere 2 weeks after classes started for the Spring 2017 semester. The college and NOCCCD (using your property tax dollars) wants to build a 4-story parking structure that will require the installation of 2 new traffic signals on Berkeley Ave to accommodate the additional inflow and outflow of 630 additional cars.

You read that correctly- your beloved Berkeley Ave- originally built to help north/west bound travelers avoid Harbor Blvd and downtown Fullerton’s traffic congestion- will now have two additional traffic signals. The college selfishly wants to build a 4-story parking structure just to the west of the Athletic Department’s ‘Field House’ because, well, they need more parking and neighbor concerns be damned! This blogger and the entire neighborhood disagrees with and will fight you and your plan to ruin our community with the unnecessary building of parking structures and football stadiums. We eagerly await the final EIR, as we love to read documents like that for fun. I know you’ll personally let me know when the report is ready to be downloaded and viewed.
