New Aerospace Industrial Park Coming to Tulsa

Facilities would include hangar, office and warehouse space

The increase in parking revenue is due to a $2-per-day short-term parking rate increase that trustees imposed in November. The rate increased from $6.95 a day to $8.95 a day.

The rate increase apparently has altered customer parking habits, however, staff members said.

Parking activity in March was 68,266 vehicles, up 0.6 percent from March 2005. For the first quarter, activity was 175,383 vehicles, a 0.5 percent decrease from the first three months of last year.
