From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 5, 1988:
Kansas University officials and a group of concerned residents were scheduled to meet next week on KU's plan to build a temporary parking lot on the south side of campus. The lot was needed, university officials said, for cars whose parking spots were being displaced by two pending construction projects: the new Human Development Center building between Malott and Haworth halls, and a new parking structure north of Allen Fieldhouse. The temporary lot, to contain 75 to 90 spaces, was to be built on playing fields between Robinson and the Computer Services building. Residents and members of the University Place Neighborhood Association expressed concern about the plans, citing stormwater drainage problems, traffic issues, and the elimination of greenspace and playing fields.
