Residents Getting the Boot for Parking

1 decade 1 year 11 months ago Wednesday, March 28 2007 Mar 28, 2007 Wednesday, March 28, 2007 10:07:10 PM CDT March 28, 2007 in News

Neighbors are not pleased and came together in a fight to save their homes.

While kids play around at the University Terrace playground their parents face a problem that's anything but child's play.

MU Residential Life is booting residents to make room for more hospital parking.

University Terrance resident Annamaria Csizmadia  is outraged.  She organized an apartment-wide meeting to take a stand against the policy.

"A lot of fear in what will be happening to me" says Csizmadia who is a graduate student at the University.

Everyone living at the complex is a student of the university and with finals coming up, they have other things on their minds.

"The last thing I need to be worrying about is where I am  going to live and where my child is going to be living." says  Csizmadi

Csizmadia and her neighbors say they'll write a petition asking the University of Missouri-Columbia Board of Curators to change its mind so students can keep their homes.

Residential Life left notices on students' doors Friday night, but their offices were closed all weekend, leaving big questions unanswered.

"Why don't they build new student apartments?" asked resident Armand Diama

He says moving out is a hassle.

Diama explains. "Finding a good place is not easy. Me, I don't like to move. When I look at a place I take it, and I stay."

Residential Life says it will try to find housing for students, but there's no guarantee.

"It's a major dillema to wait and see if they will give me housing or should I go ahead and start looking out in the community" says Csizmadia

Apartment residents will have another chance to make their voice heard this Tuesday at 7:30 pm in Bryant Auditorium in the University Hospital.
