Wow, talk about beating a dead horse. It's a free country, park anywhere it is legal.

How about this idea: We only regulate the areas that have problems. Don't get aggressive about ticketing in areas that aren't having problems. Only offer passes for areas that have problems. Let each precinct vote on whether they want this heavy handed government regulation or not.

So if you own a house in Marietta, you own part of the street too???

My thought is that there is a reasonable expectation that you should be able to park in front of your house.

I also think that that college should ask every student if they have a car or not. If they do, they must buy a pass.

I also expect some of them to lie about it. If the student lies about it and gets caught, the student should be suspended.

The college needs to take care of this as it is their students who are causing the issue.

Come on MC, take the lead on this matter.

Didn't they get rid of the last guy policing parking because it wasn't 'cost efficient'? So what's changed?

Nascar is right. The people who live on streets near the MC campus should not be the ones purchasing a permit to park in front of their house. MC students and staff should be restricted to campus parking, plain and simple. When a residential apartment house is built, plans have to include enough parking to accommodate the residents. It's the responsibility of Marietta College to provide enough parking to accommodate those using the campus. If there aren't enough spaces for the number of students who have cars, then restrict who can have a car. Seems the city administration is approaching this from a bass-ackwards position. The onus of responsibility is that of Marietta College.

College students should park in their parking lots no matter if they have raised the rates or how how far they have to walk...pretty sad day when you have to pay to park in front of your own son attends WSCC and they too raised parking fees but now it's just added into their tuition fees, maybe MC should do this??...

Be careful with how you define this exemption. I do not want to see people parking their pieces of crap that don't run all over the city and people parking rvs and trucks and living in them.

72-hour on-street parking limits are not fair to anyone that lives in the city and has no off street parking . I have had to deal with it myself in the past not enough parking on the street and a neighbor always calling on someone because their never was enough room .
