Schools that charge for parking?

Postby LICKING COUNTY FAN » Fri Dec 16, 2016 4:40 am

Are they just allowed to charge you to park on a public lot that is free six days a week, or do they have to get a permit or is some other legal move made them?


Just curious.


On a side note I have not found any schools in Kentucky that charge for parking.

That is what led to this post about Ohio schools doing this.

Schools can choose to charge you to park on their property, no permits needed...

personally I have never had a problem with paying to park on a lot like central Christian church at ironton, or ohio university. because the money is going to a good cause and the lots are watched by workers. less chance of a break in. but ironton does not charge to park in their parking lot or any area surrounding the school.

Just like bait, If a school charges for parking I am I fine with it. Put it in a fund for example turf replacement!

Speaking of turf replacement Logan will be needing one shortly,they say the lifespan is 8-10 years.Hope they add more color this time around.Logan does not charge for parking but I think they do during playoffs.

I have enjoyed my trips to Logan. You are correct no charge during the season. I believe it is three bucks come playoffs.

I thought I heard if you charge for play offs you had to charge for every game. I don't think Logan charges for play off. I didn't go to one there this year but in the past I never paid.

That's not the case. OHSAA encourages schools to charge for parking during playoff games but it doesn't matter weather you charge or not in the regular season.
Schools charge for parking during playoff games because they keep all of that money.
If you are hosting a neutral site game you don't make any money from ticket sales at all and even if you are hosting a first round game you only male a 1.20 per presale ticket.

Ironton started charging last year. They said if you don't charge during regular season you can't charge during the playoffs so they started charging a fee to park on the school lot. Players can't even park on the lot any more. My mom and Dad get to the game at like 5 and since I was in school they parked at the same spot every time, but not any more they have to park on the street next to the stadium. It's a bunch of crap to charge people to park on the school lot.

UL isn't interested in hosting the state championship's and UK's stadium sucks so WKU is a good option.

If he's not bragging about himself then he's complaining about Ohio and the OHSAA. Funny a guy will drive 180 miles one-way for a game and then bitch about the charge to park.

You mustn't get on him about stalking me and taking his third grade level shots at me. She has a horrible life in the real world and needs to feel better about herself and this is only achieved by her time on these boards.

Just pray for her and let her do as she needs.


Now back to the topic.
There seems to be some talk about changes being made as far as where the Kentucky state finals are played.

No, every year he starts the same threads, why aren't you attending the finals; programs too expensive; parking too expensive; State only cares about money; I went to 100 games, etc.

Well the Greenup County, KY Musketeers baseball record last year was 39-2. So, 41 games versus probably 20-something that most Ohio teams played after taking into account weather cancellations. I think the most an Ohio school can schedule including scrimmages is 27? Not sure about that.

So yeah twice is pretty close at least when you are talking baseball.

Greenup traveled to either Florida or Myrtle Beach as I recall and probably played 10 games their before the season. Many Ohio schools meanwhile only have a certain window that they can travel more than a state away prior to their regular baseball season. No such window for Kentucky teams to my knowledge.

Doesn't KY only award a single state title for basketball, unlike Ohio awarding four?

If that is the case, then would you rather play a longer regular season with a very minimal chance of winning the state title (as a small enrollment school) or a 22 game season with a state tournament that gives small schools a chance to win a title?

As Orange and Brown confirmed earlier, that is incorrect. I've seen a number of people swear that the stipulation is true, so it may have been an OHSAA rule in years past, but not today.

In fact, the only OHSAA reg you can find on charging parking fees for football games is regarding tournament games - see section 4, item 16:
http://www.ohsaa.org/sports/ft/boys/ftrglt.pdf

NOTE: I believe the $3.00 maximum is an increase from 2015. Then and in prior years, the max listed was $2.00

Exactly right. Hamilton Township has been hosting playoff games since 2008, and we have only charged to park for those games - never during the regular season. You'd think we would have been dinged by OHSAA by now if there was such a by-law about the regular season, and I know of other host schools who only charge when hosting playoffs.

There have been two playoff games at Hamilton Twp where we did NOT charge for parking - the only two times HT was the higher seed with home field advantage in week 11. That was an administrative decision by the athletic department, and I don't think our fans or the visiting fans minded one bit.
