RECOMMENDATION FOR CHANGES IN COMPOSITION OF

PARKING AND TRAFFIC APPEALS PANEL


PARKING AND TRAFFIC APPEALS PANEL

FUNCTION: To review petitions and appeals arising in connection with the parking priorities and enforcement of regulations.

COMPOSITION: At least eighteen members of the General Faculty, [two] ten members of the staff, and ten students.*

RATIONALE:

Currently, the Chair of the Appeals Panel finds it difficult to find staff members to hear appeals, and thus some members are called to serve too often. Enlarging the pool should help relieve this problem.

*Student members shall be appointed by the President in the fall from a panel of names submitted by the appropriate student committee.
