Rose Festival Moratorium - June 1st, 2017 through June 12th, 2017

Holiday Moratorium - November 17th, 2016 through January 3rd, 2017

Each year, during the Rose Festival activities and again during the holiday season Portland's Bureau of Transportation limits routine work that requires cutting open, closing, or blocking of any roadway, on street parking or sidewalk in the core area and principle streets as identified on the moratorium map.

Work in the sidewalk or roadway necessitated by extreme conditions must be approved by the Bureau of Transportation and in most cases reviewed by the moratorium committee members before authorization by permit or agreement will be issued.

All requests must be submitted using the attached form click here for Moratorium Exemption Request Form.  Please e-mail to the Moratorium Committee, Attention: Faith Winegarden at
