MINUTES OF THE MEETING
of the
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
April 20, 1967

Communication from Mr. Varner:

Our committee on the parking problem at Oakland University has come forth with a belated report, but it is not yet clear as to the precise course of action which they will propose for the year ahead. Two things do emerge at this time, however: 1) We obviously must have additional parking facilities--about 800 new spaces next September--and 2) these must somehow be paid for from some system of charges.

In view of the fact that that we need to move with minimum delay, I would like to recommend that the Board authorize us to proceed with the design work at this time and come back to the Board of Trustees at the May Board meeting with a specific plan of action. It is my guess that we will need to spend about $160,000 to $175,000 on this project, and it is my expectation that we can set up a system of charges which will cover about one-fourth of the total amount per year. This will take care of the current backlog we have and permit us to work out a more orderly parking scheme in the years ahead.

On motion by Mr. Harlan, seconded by Dr. Smith, it was voted to approve the above recommendation

It is recommended that the Board authorize an expenditure of approximately $20,000 to make it it possible to complete the air conditioning of North Foundation Hall.

On motion by Mr. Merriman, seconded by Mr. Harlan, it was voted to approve the above item. Mr. Hartman and Mr. White voted "no" on this item.
