The Board of Directors for the University of Florida Department of Recreational Sports (RecSports), in collaboration with UF Student Government, presented a proposal to the UF Parking and Transportation Committee for consideration of additional unrestricted parking hours adjacent to Southwest Recreation Center. The proposal is part of an ongoing effort to increase student engagement and accessibility and encourage healthy living among the UF student body. The Parking and Transportation Committee approved extended weekday hours, lifting parking restrictions on Bledsoe Drive (north west of Southwest Recreation Center) an hour earlier—now starting at 2:30 p.m.. The effort is effective immediately and will be evaluated through the end of Summer B. At that time, the committee and RecSports will reevaluate the measure and consider an extension through Fall 2013 and/or beyond. Note: The change is limited to the Bledsoe Drive parking lot. Parking restrictions have not changed for cultural plaza parking and other Hull Road parking lots. For more information on University of Florida campus parking, visit http://parking.ufl.edu/.
