  • Phase Two: Expand 2-hour parking to Tigard St and portions of Burnham St to accommodate high demand on Main St. Completion expected end of Nov 2017See Changes to 2-hour Parking Zone.
  • Phase Three: Items on the agenda at the Public Hearing:
    • Enable the creation of 4-hour parking areas, and the opportunity to purchase parking permits that allow all-day parking in these areas.  See 4-hour Parking/Permits.
    • Ordinance update, including legislation that allows Phase Three, and numerous minor updates to the parking and the abandoned vehicle ordinances.
