During the past few years, city staff have been working closely with residents and businesses to develop a Northwest District Parking Plan. After an extensive review and revision process, the Portland City Council approved a final ordinance and plan in July 2013. Once implemented, visitors to the area will notice some big changes.
Residents living in the area and participating in the (Zone M) permit program, will be exempted from the time caps and fees mentioned, whether the space is metered or unmetered. However, those permits will not apply to metered spaces along and between NW 21st and 23rd streets or to the 30-minute spaces.
The current boundaries for Zone M are Burnside to Irving, 18th to Westover. Once meters are installed, the permit district will stretch from Burnside north toNW Vaughn street and fromNW 16th Avenue west toNW 25th Avenue. The program may be expanded further west upon request.
In 2009, the Portland Bureau of Transportation began working on a plan to address parking challenges in the Northwest District.
