Ideas for Parking Policy in Buckman and Portland
The Portland Bureau of Transportation has a new project called “Centers + Corridors, Parking Toolkit and Analysis”, which is exploring options for changing parking policy.
Buckman resident William Gregg is serving on the Stakeholder Advisory Committee, and is looking for ideas:
“We will be developing several toolkits that can be used for varying situations and it will ultimately be sent to City Council for a vote.
While it seems like it is ultimately headed to the establishment of a new 24 hour area parking permit system and thus charging a monthly fee to park on the streets, I feel there are many other things that can also be implemented to increase the supply of spaces and reduce the demand for spaces. I have come up with six ideas of my own, but would like to enlist the help of the community in coming up with some ideas of their own that I can present to the committee.
Building new parking garages is off the table.
Most any and all suggestions are fine and will be taken under consideration. Feel free to send any ideas to William Gregg at: WGregg123@aol.com
