Recently, Moe Baker of the Baptist Student Union sent this email concerning the responsible use of parking. He also added that Sundays are no longer available for parking. Please be considerate and respect the BSU parking lot. The letter outlines the policy:
Dear St. John's,
We understand that there was a funeral today at your church. We know that parking is an issue, and we have tried to be good neighbors, but only ONE person from St. John's contacted a BSU staff member this morning requesting permission to park in our lot for the funeral. We can no longer allow your parishioners and visitors to park at the Baptist Student Union during regular business hours, which are from 8am-5pm, M-F. We sell out our lot to students in order to give them the first priority to park in our lot, and when others park in our lot during business hours and have no affiliation with the Baptist Student Union, our paid parking pass holders are unable to find enough space in our own lot, which cannot continue. We strongly discourage BSU students from parking at your church lot when we are holding BSU events, and we expect the same consideration from your church.
Moving forward, we will allow your parishioners and visitors to park in our lot on Sunday mornings and evenings for your services, provided that there is not an event at our campus ministry during those times, but we will not continue to allow unlimited use of our parking lot, including on Sundays. We cannot allow your parishioners and visitors to continue to park here during regular business hours, M-F. We regret having to take this action, but we are left with no choice when we arrive at our building and all of our own parking spaces are already filled, several by people in your church. We will be checking our lot daily for valid BSU parking hang tags and will call for vehicles to be towed that are parked in our lot without a valid hang tag. Please communicate our policy to your parishioners as needed, and remind them to read the "No Parking" signs that are displayed prominently at each entrance to our lot.
