Parking garage prices to increase
UA students and faculty who plan on parking in the Park and Cherry avenue garages next semester will have to dig deeper in their pockets to purchase permits. Effective Aug. 16, the Cherry Avenue Garage's rate will increase from $340 to $375 and the Park Avenue Garage will go up from $300 to $350. The higher prices are meant to enable Parking and Transportation Services to repay the construction loans for both garages without assistance from other department auxiliaries, said Marlis Davis, UA parking director.

It's a shame it had to end this way. After a season where every expectation was met and even exceeded, the men's basketball team lost to less-talented Oklahoma in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Would the recent price increase for parking garage permits cause you to not get one?
