Monroe County Parking Program at MCC
Brighton Campus Traffic and
purpose of these regulations is to reduce traffic congestion,
facilitate orderly parking, and safeguard the college community
members and guests. The New York State Motor Vehicle and Traffic
Law is also in full force and effect on the campus. The Monroe
County Parking Program establishes fees and fines for parking
on the campus.
2. All motor
vehicles parked on lots owned by Monroe County and held in trust
for Monroe Community College must be registered and have a permit
displayed, or park at a parking meter (except according to C1m).
Parking at a meter with a parking permit still requires payment
for time at a metered space. A fee is charged for each vehicle
registered, and may be requested when registering for classes
on a semester basis.
Authorized spaces - Drivers are responsible for finding an authorized
parking space. Lack of space, mechanical problems, inclement weather
or tardiness do not justify parking violations.
Availability - A parking permit does not guarantee the holder
a parking space but only an opportunity to park within a specified
area or areas.
Ownership - a parking permit signifies an individual has been
granted the privilege of parking on campus property. Ownership
of the parking permit remains with the college.
Display - Parking permits or passes must be displayed according
to the parking instructions provided by the Parking Office at
the time of issuance.
