Bicycle Parking Code Update
Presented by Sarah Figliozzi and Liz Hormann
PBOT is reviewing the Bicycle Parking Title 33 code requirements. A stakeholder advisory committee has been meeting since February 2016 and is getting close to finalizing their set of recommendations for the code update, based on best practices from other cities, current practice from developers in Portland, and with an eye to the City's active transportation goals.
The City of Portland envisions a vibrant city, where 25 percent of all trips are made using a bicycle. To reach this goal, the City will need to build a connected and safe network of bicycle infrastructure. However, the journey does not end when someone riding a bicycle leaves the road. End-of-trip facilities, including a place to safely and securely park a bicycle, are a key component of creating an attractive and functional bicycling network.
The current Bicycle Parking code requirements were largely written and adopted 20 years ago. Since then the share of people biking to work in Portland has quadrupled - from 1.2 percent to just over 7 percent, bicycle sizes have become more diverse (including cargo bikes and e-bikes), and bicycle security concerns have increased.
Come hear about the code changes recommended to meet Portlanders' current and future needs for travel by bike.
