The parking dispute between Gesu and Marquette was resolved, according to a letter posted on the Church of the Gesu’s website and signed by Fr. Jim Flaherty, head pastor of Gesu, and University President Michael Lovell.

The terms of the agreement include a new surface parking lot that will be constructed west of Lot F. It will be available to Gesu parishioners on the weekends. Parking in Lot G on the weekends and parking in the law school parking structure on Sundays are also options for parishioners.

It is unclear if the construction of the new lot will delay the construction of the Athletic and Human Performance Research Center.

The brief stated that the leadership of the two institutions have agreed to meet regularly to “maintain an open dialogue with respect to important topics that mutually affect Marquette and the parish.” This includes a collaborative investigation into more parking options in the area.

The short-term parking alternatives that Marquette has offered to Gesu parishioners are the same as previously stated, and the shared services agreement between Marquette and Gesu is unchanged.
