If you are a student at College of the Canyons you have probably struggled to find parking throughout the semester. The new parking facility will be three stories high and will add up to 1,000 additional parking spots.
Eric Harnish, the COC Vice President of Public Information, stated that the current plan is to close parking lot 8 temporarily for approximately 9 months in order to make way for the construction of the new facility.
Students have demonstrated a growing concern regarding the additional congestion the construction will cause before the new parking facility is open. Some students question whether there is a better option to construct the new parking facility without hindering the already limited parking availability.
Construction of the new parking facility is expected to begin at the start of the Fall 2017 semester.
