LLOYD ON-STREET PARKING METER REVENUE ALLOCATION PLAN
Administrative Rule Adopted by Bureau of Transportation Systems Management Pursuant to Rule-Making Authority
REPORT TO COUNCIL
DATE: July 22, 1998
TO: Charlie Hales, Commissioner-in-Charge
FROM: Bureau of Traffic Management, Parking Management Division
Transmitted herewith as Exhibit A is the Lloyd District Parking Meter Revenue Allocation Plan for July 1998 - June 2000.
This is the first biennial revenue allocation plan for the Lloyd District since the adoption of the Lloyd District On-Street Parking Management Plan (1997), and the City of Portland's Parking Meter District Policy (1996). These documents called for the installation of parking meters in the Lloyd District and the allocation of the majority of meter revenue to transportation projects in this district.
In September 1997, the City of Portland installed on-street parking meters in Lloyd District. Meters were installed to reduce commuter parking in the District, to increase customer turn over for businesses and to encourage commuters to use alternative modes of travel, such as transit, bicycling and walking to work.
The Lloyd District On-Street Parking Management Plan (1997) and the City of Portland's Parking Meter District Policy (1996) provide guidelines and directions for the allocation of net meter revenues from parking meter systems. According to these documents the majority of net meter revenues should go to supporting transportation and parking services within the meter district. New meter districts may warrant a larger share of meter revenues at first, to cover startup and transition costs.
In accordance with the City's Parking Meter District Policy and the Lloyd District On-Street Parking Management Plan, PDOT organized the Lloyd District Meter Revenue Allocation Committee (RAC) in the Fall of 1997, to review the expected financial performance of the Lloyd meter district and to develop a recommended net revenue allocation plan for the 1998-2000 biennium.
The RAC, composed of representatives from District businesses and adjacent neighborhoods, recommended projects, programs and services to be funded by meter revenue. The attached plan details the process and recommendations of this first advisory committee for the allocation of parking meter funds.
The recommendations include the following: a contract with the Lloyd District Transportation Management Association (TMA) to implement the Lloyd District Partnership Plan which calls for increased transit service and use; support for the extension of fareless square to Lloyd District; and a holiday shuttle service. In addition, there are more than 20 business district and neighborhood-based programs and capital projects that the RAC recommended for future consideration.
