Plans are in place to begin construction of “Parking Structure A” during the fall semester, said Dr. Adriana Barrera, college president.

The three-story parking facility will be built on the present site of the student parking lot. A temporary parking lot near Hubbard Street and the 210 Freeway is being prepared for use by students during the anticipated 18-month construction period of the new structure.

During that period, shuttle service from the temporary parking lot to the Mission College campus will be available at no cost to students – with shuttles running approximately every 15 minutes during peak class times.

Students will not be charged parking fees during the period that the new parking structure is being built, Dr. Barrera said.

"Parking Structure A" is one of Mission College’s Proposition A campus improvements projects. The covered, three-story facility will double the amount of parking space available for students. As an added bonus, it will have photovoltaic units on the top level which will generate some power for the campus.
