"PARKING REPRESENTS MANY THINGS TO MANY PEOPLE:
FOR THE CITY'S FINANCE DIRECTOR IT IS REVENUE;
BUT A PARKING MANAGEMENT PROGRAM MUST LOOK, NOT AT SUPPLY AND DEMAND, BUT AT MOBILITY AND ACCESS AND HOW PARKING CAN BEST SERVE MULTIPLE DEMANDS WHEN IT IS ASSUMED THAT IT IS UNLIMITED."
The above was the introductory statement made by Elsa Coleman, Parking Manager for the City of Portland, Oregon for a report on Portland's Parking Management Program at a recent OMPO meeting.
To achieve their goals for parking to support the economy, increase traffic flow, encourage transit use and maintain a healthy environment, Portland's program recognizes that parking is an integral part of the transportation system, certain factors limit supply, competing uses must be considered, and commuter trips to downtown should be primarily by transit. Presently commuter trips account for about 45% in Portland.
Ms. Coleman's report highlights Portland's Downtown Parking and Circulation Policy intended to encourage parking for visitors, customers and clients, and transit for commuters. The City builds and operates short-term parking garages and contracts with the downtown business and retail association for management. City and State garages provide reserved spaces at reduced rates for car pools.
Ms. Coleman reports that Downtown Portland is divided into subdistricts, such as retail core, government, residential, cultural, university, historic and waterfront. The next step for the Portland Parking program is to determine how the functions in each subdistrict impact parking supply, access and mobility.
