Having a "greener" car has its advantages. If you drive a car with a high Green Score according to LEED requirements, you may qualify for a better parking spot.
MCC's Downtown Campus is introducing preferential parking spaces for low-emission (LEV) and fuel-efficient vehicles. These spaces are located in Lot AA, directly across S. Plymouth Ave. from Frontier Field. Signs are posted in the designated row. These parking spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis. Enforcement of these spaces will begin on December 4th.
Monroe Community College uses GreenerCars' list of LEED-qualified cars. If your vehicle meets the EPA standard, you qualify for a Low-emitting and Fuel Efficient (LEFE) parking space.
Low-emitting and fuel efficient vehicles are defined as vehicles that are either classified as Zero emission Vehicles (ZEV) by the California Air Resources Board or have achieved a minimum green score of 40 on the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEED) annual vehicle rating guide.
LEFE parking registration is required by filling out an LEED Program Application with Parking Services.
Once completed, the Parking Services staff will verify that your vehicle qualifies and will code your parking account accordingly. This code can be identified by MCC parking enforcement personnel using license plate recognition (LPR) technology. Applications are available in the Parking Services office at both the Brighton Campus in Building 1, Room 102, and the Downtown Campus in Building 32, Room 122.
When the application has been approved, Parking Services will contact you via email and you can begin to park in the Low Emission's area.
LEFE parking permits are good for the entire semester for students as long as their vehicle information remains the same. Employee's registration for LEFE is valid for as long as they own the qualifying vehicle and are employed by MCC.
There are first come, first served parking stalls reserved for LEFE vehicles in parking Lot AA. If the spaces are full, you must park in either a designated student spaces (if you are a student) or an employee space/lot (if you are an employee)
