Glide control to Torrey Pines

**The gliderport parking lot has been STOLEN from the taxpayers:** The Torrey Pines Gliderport has become an **unofficial UCSD parking lo**t with the city receiving **zero** **income** and the taxpayers (and importantly also - tourists) who want to use the beach and gliderport absolutely **zero places** to park. If you want to park there to hike or surf or whatever, you have to be there before 8 AM or ALL the spots will be taken by students who park their cars, grab their backpacks and head east to UCSD. The spaces are taken **ALL DAY LONG** with no relief until classes end in the PM. Imagine what it would be like if the **parking lot at La Jolla Shores** was taken over by UCSD students cars all day long. **Safety Concerns:** Not only it is **wrong of them** to take over the parking lot, they park their vehicles so tightly that emergency vehicles such as fire engines and ambulances cannot drive through to access the cliff edge for rescues. **Something has to give**: Either pave it and put parking meters on the spaces with maximum 2 hour time limit (which also screws the recreational user) or designate a **definite** portion of the lot - (preferably close to the gliderport) **NON-UCSD PARKING.** Failing meters, the City of San Diego should charge the UC system at least $10 million per year for the use of the lot. UCSD can add the cost to the tuition of the students. In the meantime, the UC system SHOULD be building multistory parking structures **ON CAMPUS**.
