Beach Fees

Beachgoers that frequent Goleta’s Campus Point received a shock last week when feeding the parking meters in the nearby UCSB parking lot. To many, it seemed the parking fees had inexplicably doubled overnight – from 25 cents for 10 minutes to 25 cents for five minutes. School officials say the rate hike in Lot 6 is the latest in a campus-wide increase in parking fees dating back to a policy adopted in November of last year. Officials hope to have additional signage in place next week directing patrons to nearby pay stations that accept cash or credit cards. Not only will this reduce the number of quarters people need to carry around, but the pay stations will also offer a small rate reduction based on how long they plan to stay.
