1980’s: Free Parking Comes To An End

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary here at St. Clair College we’re taking a look…

It wasn’t until the 1984-85 school that a pass was required.

In October 1983, discussions about paid parking began amongst administration with the theory that it would help pay for campus maintenance costs.

Just five months later, paid parking was approved by the College’s Board of Governors to go into effect the following September.
