My school did a similar thing. U of Cincinnati has a horrible parking problem, in that it doesn't exist. The few garages that they do have are incredibly expensive. There was one large lot that most of the students got permits for. The only real lot of substantial size, and only permit within reasonable cost. So, what did they do? Replace it with some grass and a few trees. It wasn't even a nice park.
Some idiots said that they'd attract more students if they had more green space on campus. But, guess what, when you have a city campus, you just have limited greenspace. Sorry. But there's no need to eliminate a necessity that's already in shortage.

yep... bunch of tree huggin' hippies... except not... I guess for one thing, this will force people to use lots instead of meters which will bring in more money from the 50% tax dollars.

That, or no one will ever go downtown again...

Isn't Murphy still also trying to get rid of that parking lot and those roads between the Carnegie and the Pitt library? Maybe they're far too convenient and well-maintained, and therefore must be destroyed.

I hadn't heard that, but it definitely wouldn't surprise me. God forbid there be a road in Pittsburgh with no potholes...
