ShareFest 2018 Collection Site Requires Chestnut Fields Parking Restrictions

Parking Restriction May 14-21

ShareFest is an annual collection drive which accepts good-condition and reusable furniture, housewares, clothing, and non-perishable food from Miami University students and Oxford residents. Once again this year, ShareFest is basing its dispatch, sorting and collection operations in the Chestnut Fields parking lot which will require a number of parking spaces to accommodate them.

Please move vehicles from the areas shown in yellow on the attached map before Monday, May 14 at noon to avoid citations and towing at the owner’s cost.

Parking restrictions in Chestnut Fields parking lot shown in yellow areas.

How Does ShareFest Work?

Donors complete an online form with items they wish to donate and ShareFest volunteers go to the house or apartment to pick up the items during the chosen day and one-hour time block. Donated items are picked up by volunteers and staff of social service agencies from Butler County.

Social service agencies that receive donations will distribute items to people in need, or sell the items in their thrift stores. All proceeds from the sale of ShareFest donations must benefit the social service agency.

ShareFest helps keep the city clean and helps prevent usable items from going to the landfill while helping out members of the community in need.

Ways to Help

Fall 2017 parking changes for employees and admission guests

Miami University’s parking and transportation services is making several changes in fall 2017 to better allocate the parking spaces near Shriver Center.

The changes follow an occupancy study of the parking spaces reserved for admission guest visits during spring 2017 and modifications to the MacMillan Hall and Shriver Center west parking lots to increase capacity.

Maple Street

  • Employee (RED permit) parking will be returned to 30 spaces on Maple from Hiestand Hall to Center Drive.
  • Short-term metered parking will be available on Maple from Hiestand to Spring Street but may be restricted to admission guest parking during anticipated peak admission visit times.

Signs will be posted on parking meter poles, and the meters will display restrictions when they are in effect. Metered parking on Maple will cost $2 per hour during peak hours (7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday) and $1 per hour at other times. Parking meters are enforced 7 a.m.-10 p.m. seven days a week.

MacMillan Hall and Shriver Center west parking lots

  • Pay and display parking kiosk

    Pay and display parking kiosk.

    The lots will be restricted to vehicles displaying admission guest parking permits 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday.

  • After 4 p.m. and all day on weekends the parking lots will have paid parking available to the public. Payments will be made at a kiosk located in each lot, and the receipt issued at the kiosk showing the expiration time must be displayed on the parked vehicle’s dashboard.

Paid parking will cost $1 per hour and be enforced anytime the lot is not restricted to admission guest parking, including overnight.

These changes and restrictions are expected to take effect on Friday, Aug. 18, when construction in these areas has been completed.

Additional parking

  • Additional employee (RED permit) parking will be added to lots at the Center for Performing Arts, Bachelor Hall and on the east side of Cook Field to replace the spaces allocated for admission parking in the MacMillan and Shriver Center lots. It will be available by the end of September.
  • The southwest corner of the Cook Field parking lot that was to have parking meters installed will remain employee (RED permit) parking 7 a.m.-6 p.m Monday-Friday and be available to anyone with a valid Miami University parking permit at all other times.

All parking restrictions, time limits and prices will be clearly displayed on signs in the affected areas.

If you have questions about parking on Miami University’s campus, contact parking customer services at (513) 529-2224 during business hours or email parking@miamioh.edu.
