Minutes – May 11, 2011
The meeting was convened at 2:30 p.m. by Mr. Pusecker.
Excused: Glen Loller, Mike Parisi
Minutes for the March 9, 2011 meeting were discussed and accepted as written.
The request was made that the prohibition of left turns onto Amstel Avenue from South College be temporarily suspended during the temporary closure of the road from Memorial Day weekend through the middle of July. This is to allow people to have access Amstel Avenue from the north and the south. Contact has been made by the university with the City of Newark to request the temporary suspension and the answer is “no”.
Constituent is asking about the possibility of having a crosswalk at the corner of S. College Avenue and Winslow Road which is a major crossing point for people who park in the Library lot and for those who exit the bus. The Office of Government Relations will start the process by asking City of Newark. S. College is a state road and the state will also need to approve.
A constituent is proposing that employees who park in one of the parking garages have a duplicate card or ID that they can use to get into the garage only and have a separate ID that can be used for the fitness center, library, etc. Mr. Pusecker responded that this has come up before and that duplicate ID’s are not a possibility.
