Downtown Parking

The City is constantly working to make downtown a place where people want to be. With new residents, businesses and development in downtown, the City is in the process of updating and changing parking regulations. Due to areas of high customer demand for on-street parking, the city has recently held a series of hearings to update signage, fees and enforcement practices.

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. - Completed December 2017
  • Phase Three:
    • Ordinance update, including legislation that allows Phase Three, and numerous minor updates to the parking and the abandoned vehicle ordinances. – Completed January 2018
    • Cost of parking tickets and the cost of permits. – Completed January 2018
    • 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. - Expected Completion Summer 2018
