University parking upsets residents

Near Collegium Novum and Mauis, Gołebia and Jagiellośka Streets are usually filled with parked cars. While for the most part cars can’t park around the Main Square, on most of these streets employees of Jagiellonian University can. The streets are the city’s property; however, the university has a contract with them allowing them to use up to 70 parking spots. A citizen’s group has appealed to the city to remove parking spots on these streets, as they prove a major inconvenience in what is mostly a pedestrian only zone. The university has stated that for special meetings, such as a visit from the president of Croatia, special guests would not be able to park near the building if not for their parking spots. The city is currently analyzing the complaint. [Radio Krakow]
