  • There have been discussions and plans for many years to make Millersville University’s campus more pedestrian friendly. When the Villages were built, George Street was closed at the Student Memorial Center to c […]

    • This will make the campus less commuter friendly. There will be a loss of parking spaces along Frederick St. This will also cause the James St. area to be more congested during peak times, as many of those using Creek Dr. Parking Lot will have to enter an exit it via James St. The congestion will also cause more cars to wait at the light on George St. and more gas wasted while idling in the congestion. A lot of people use Frederick St. to High School Ave. to exit campus and avoid the light at George St. and to avoid the congestion of James St. Also in the event of an emergency, there will be fewer ways for exiting campus.

    • I agree with the first comment. This will really snarl traffic for those using the Creek Drive parking lot. And it will eliminate a lot of parking spots. While I am a great believer in friendliness to pedestrians, they do not seem to have any problem at all coping with the traffic on Frederick Street. And the traffic congestion from the Creek Drive lot is already a problem. Perhaps putting up a pedestrian crossing at Frederick St and High School Ave would take care of any issues about crossing Frederick St and this would not significantly hinder vehicular traffic.

    • I completely agree with the other two comments. I don’t see E Frederick being such a big issue for pedestrians that it would need to be entirely closed to vehicles. The only issue I see is all the jaywalking. Those who are even entertaining this idea must not be aware of the already-heavily congested James and S George. That traffic gets backed up down toward end of McComsey parking lot as it is now! Also, the Frederick closing will influence commuters to use the Centennial Dr to Shenks Lane route. You really want a significant amount of commuters going through the residence hall area? As stated already, parking will become even more of a hassle if E Frederick is closed. Implementing this idea will truly create more traffic in other areas.

    • I have a degenerative nerve disorder that effects me I. A multitude of different ways. Walking long distances or walking too much can cause me to be in pain for days. This plan takes away being able to park at the handicap spots near luek and hash. Not to mention there are already not enough handicap parking spots. I really feel like doing this has no benefit to students what so ever. I think you are creating problems where there doesn’t need to be. We have a large population of commuter students. More so than we do resident students… the campus should be creating parking not taking it away.

      Editor’s Note: The handicap parking as well as staff and commuter spaces in the lots off High School Ave. will still be accessible. You can access them from George St. to the short block of E. Frederick St. and turn left (North) on High School Ave.
