New Apartments and Parking: Updated FAQ

January 29, 2013

The City recently provided us with an updated FAQ on parking requirements for new apartment developments. The document is attached below. Here’s the text of the City’s e-mail:

Attached please find an updated copy of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) memo.  The memo includes three new questions (#1, #2 and #3).  Question #1 includes information from the November 13th Planning and Sustainability public forum and the January 10th City Council session.  It also includes information on next steps.  Question #7 has been updated to include four additional upcoming apartments: three on N Mississippi and one on N Vancouver.

A proposed set of near-term regulatory changes will be released the beginning of February 2013.  A public hearing with the Planning and Sustainability Commission is now scheduled for March 12, 2013 at 12:30 p.m. at 1900 SW 4th Avenue, Room 2500 A.  Public testimony on the draft proposal will be invited at the hearing.  Longer term solutions will be discussed as part of the Comprehensive Plan Update.

Portland Plan Cheat Sheet

December 9, 2011

Got this e-mail from the always awesome Leah Dawkins at SE Uplift:

Hi Everyone- By now, most of you should know that the Portland Plan Draft is available for review. I have read the long version and with the help of Matt Wickstrom,  I put together a cheat-sheet to assist you in reviewing the document. I have highlighted sections I think will be particularly interesting or relevant to SE Uplift neighborhoods and I have hopefully addressed some of the more confusing parts of the document. The cheat-sheet is just full of suggestions, please read the whole document if you have the time and the interest! You can find the documents here: and I have one photocopy of the summary document for each neighborhood which you can pick up here at the office. The hearings start on Wednesday, November 9th. The first one is at Jefferson High School from 5:30 to 9:00 PM. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks, Leah
