Park Center parking lot with carsAt the Oct. 24 regular school board meeting, board members will consider establishing a uniform parking fee of $45 per trimester at all three comprehensive high schools (Maple Grove, Osseo, Park Center). Parking permit fees currently exist at all three high schools; this proposal will ensure consistency in the cost of a permit. The proposal addresses only the fee for a parking permit; it will not cover any aspects related to implementation, such as eligibility for or distribution of parking permits.

Anyone interested in sharing their perspectives on the proposed parking fee is invited to do so by emailing welisten@district279.org or by commenting during the public hearing portion of the meeting. The meeting (and the public hearing) will begin at 6 p.m. on October 24, 2017, in the Board Room of the Educational Service Center, 11200 93rd Ave. N, Maple Grove.
