OK, Fresno State, you’ve showed us the plans and broken ground on your Big (with a capital B) new Campus Pointe project. With a 2,700-seat movie complex and 250,000 square feet of retail space, it certainly will attract lots of cars, that’s for sure. And you thought traffic on Shaw Avenue was bad already.
Here’s what I don’t understand: Why no parking garage? In this day and age, as we fret about water, global warming, loss of farmland, etc., you’d think the least the university could do with a new flagship complex like this is build up for parking, not just spread asphalt far and wide.
