To the Editor: Parking garage would make more sense than open air lots

I just wanted to comment on the article in the Jan. 30 Sentinel "BGSU outlines building plans".
That is great that they are going to tear down buildings around campus to open them up, and to be more attractive to upcoming students and such. It is a shame that they must do that, but I do believe that by opening up campus, it will make it look better.
On the other hand though, in the article it states that "Bowling Green State University officials cleared up some of the building plans, that there are absolutely no plans for a parking garage." Why is that?
Students have been asking that question for years now. It would make a lot more sense to have a parking garage that would be some what closed in to the elements then to build slab after slab after slab of open air parking lots.
What exactly are the plans for the building that was just torn down there at the corner of N. Enterprise and Ridge St.? That would be a perfect spot for a parking garage. It doesn't have to be huge, just a small 3 or 4 story one if that. Just to make it easier on students and faculty.
Think about this Dr. Mazey and BGSU building officials when making your plans for the future.
