PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON


[ Filed February 28, 2002, 10:07 a.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 478-116-131 Parking for events and other university functions.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28B.10.560 and 28B.20.130.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The proposed parking regulation amendment is necessary to reflect a change from not charging parking fees for the University of Washington's commencement events to charging attendees for parking as a prepaid special event. Previously, the university's commencement budget covered the costs associated with managing the parking and transportation system for commencement. However, increasing costs and constrained resources have necessitated generating revenue from parking to cover costs associated with parking and traffic management, including staffing, printing, a shuttle bus system, and costs associated with traffic police.

Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.

Process for Developing New Rule: Agency study.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by directing written comments or inquiries to Rebecca Goodwin Deardorff, Director, Administrative Procedures Office, by one of the following routes: United States Mail: University of Washington, 4014 University Way N.E., Seattle, WA 98105-6203; campus mail Box 355509; e-mail adminpro@u.washington.edu; or fax (206) 616-6294.
