The City is in the process of changing parking in downtown Tigard. Due to areas of high customer demand for on-street parking, the city has recently updated signage and enforcement practices. Additional changes are also being considered by City Council.
The Tigard City Council wants to make sure that all local downtown business owners, and employees, are fully informed of these changes and aware of opportunities to weigh in.

You are invited to participate in this hearing, speak with city staff or make your comments below.
The Downtown Parking Plan’s changes include:
- Phase One: Expand 2-hour parking on Ash Ave at Burnham St - Completed in April 2017
- 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 2017. See Changes to 2-hour Parking Zone.
- Phase Three: Items on the agenda at the Public Hearing:
