Northwest Parking Plan Amendments Adopted
On July 31st the Portland City Council considered a set of amendments to the Northwest Parking Plan that the Council considered and adopted last December. The Council was pleased to hear that both the business interests and the NWDA believed the amendments are a much needed improvement and that indeed all parties were on board with the proposed revisions. The amendments were unanimously approved at that first reading. The amendments are outlined as follows: Exhibit A vs2
These amendments are also reflected on the map of the Northwest Parking District as follows: NWDistrictParkingManagementPlan5 .
Pending a schedule for procurement of the parking meters, the plan will be implemented in a single phase – as soon as early 2014. Note that the plan calls for monitoring and adjustment with input from a stakeholder Advisory Committee. The NWDA will be a part of that group and will do its best to represent the collective interests of the neighborhood. Note also that the NWDA called for specific parts of the plan to be reviewed and reconsidered within one year of implementation.
