Avenue Parking Lot Closure May 4, 2006 will be the last day of the Spring 2006 semester that the
Ramona Avenue Parking lot will be open for use. The Ramona Avenue Parking Lot
has served as the overflow parking site to ease the shortage of parking spaces
on the main campus. The need to continue using Ramona Avenue for overflow parking
no longer exists. Parking demand has diminished, and parking is available on
campus throughout the entire school day. This is to advise the campus community
that the Ramona Avenue Parking Lot will close on Thursday, May 4, 2006 for the
remainder of the semester. The Ramona Avenue Parking Lot will reopen for Fall
to check the UTAPS website, www.csus.edu/utaps,
as information regarding campus parking will be updated as parking conditions
change. If you have questions, please call 278-PARK or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
