Portland Parking Symposium: The Future of Portland Parking, will be held Monday June 29 at the Portland Building. More information can be found here.
PBOT was awarded a Transportation Growth Management grant from the state, to study and recommend parking policy within the city. A key element of the grant is a “tool kit” which will describe the suite of policies and programs available to manage on and off-street parking. We are reviewing and updating our parking management tools in light of more dense development along mixed use corridors and in neighborhood centers that are experiencing redevelopment. PBOT will take a close look at parking demand in 5 case study areas that best represent the type and intensity of development we are seeing and can expect in the future, and recommend new policy and code language related to parking demand management that would apply to commercial centers and corridors throughout the city.
Parking Occupancy and Turnover Study and Tenant Survey
In March 2015, PBOT gathered parking occupancy and turnover data for select study areas with center and corridor typologies found in the Urban Design Framework developed for the Comprehensive Plan Update. Selected study areas also have key transportation characteristics and development activity. Each study area is intended to be representational of other, similar areas throughout the City. Taking samples of parking data in areas with different characteristics will allow development of a toolkit with broad applicability. In addition, a travel behavior survey will be distributed to residents of multi-family buildings within each study area.
The five study areas are:
Results of the parking and tenant survey will be posted when they are available.
