Representatives of App State are proposing to end the evening parking permit requirement.

Interim Chancellor Dr. Heather Norris made the announcement on Friday during a newsletter update. Her full comments are below, the full newsletter can be viewed at this link.

“Last week, Vice Chancellor J.J. Brown discussed App State's evening parking permit requirement — which carries a $120 annual charge to park on the Boone campus after 5 p.m. on weekdays — with representatives from the Town of Boone, Watauga County, the Downtown Boone Development Association and the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce. As a result, we will bring a proposal to rescind App State's evening parking permit requirement to the June Board of Trustees meeting.

Pending approval by the Board, we will have no evening parking permit requirements for the coming academic year, and no permit will be required to park on the Boone campus after 5 p.m. on weeknights or on Saturdays and Sundays, with the exception of football game days and other major events.

I appreciate the continued commitment of this Board to support us as we work to repair and strengthen the university's relationship with our High Country community partners.”
