Semi-Annual Reminder RE: Disabled Parking Space Use–Notice

We send this notice campus-wide twice per year to help educate about the need to save accessible parking spaces for customers authorized to use them. At times, we send it in advance of enforcement events where we partner with campus police to target enforcement in areas that tend to be more problematic. We also deploy temporary signs moved from area to area to help raise awareness.
