40 years ago: Parking concerns vs. aesthetics on KU campus

April 8, 2012


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 8, 1972:

Recent proposals to increase parking revenue at Kansas University were not going to endanger any of the beauty of the campus, according to Robert Malinowsky, chairman of the KU Parking and Traffic Board. Malinowsky said today that he would be extremely reluctant to propose installing parking meters along the length of Jayhawk Boulevard. In this he was in "perfect agreement," he said, with a recent Journal-World editorial which had come out strongly against meters on the boulevard. More feasible plans included metered parking in loading zones, near Haworth Hall, and in the area off Jayhawk Boulevard around Strong Hall. Also under consideration was a plan to make the boulevard a controlled-access, one-way street leading east from the Chi Omega fountain to Danforth Chapel.
