I’m a freshman at BYU this year, and something has struck me about Provo: the parking situation.
Let me start with the positives of parking in Provo, it was a great design 80 years ago. Now that that’s out of the way, the parking in Provo is absolutely terrible. There isn’t enough of it, the lines are too short if you drive anything bigger than a Toyota Corolla, you need a permit to park anywhere, and it’s completely unorganized. Obviously, Provo is not getting any smaller any time soon, so it would probably be a good idea to think of something.
Now, as I’ve pondered long and hard on how to solve this age-old problem, I think I’ve solved the unsolvable problem. Parking garages.
I come from a big city called Las Vegas where there are a lot of people and we use parking garages. They are these great things where you can use tall buildings to put lots of layers of cars on top of each other without losing square footage. You can even find these great things here in Utah; just look at City Creek and its success with parking. Let’s put in some parking garages.
