Neighborhood planning -- Oregon -- Portland, Community development -- Oregon -- Portland, Automobile parking -- Oregon -- Portland
The purpose of this study is to ground the Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI) facilitator in the nature of parking issues relevant to Northwest. A comprehensive examination of parking in Northwest will include a review of past efforts, an analysis of the parking-supply and demand, and a detailed review of program and policy alternatives that may be applied in Northwest. The research has two primary goals: 1) is to provide objective data that will be acceptable to both the Northwest District Association (NWDA) and Nob Hill Business Association (NHBA) and 2) to provide policy analyses to ground stakeholders in parking theory and parking management techniques.
The study is divided into four main sections. Section 1 is the introduction and history section. Section 2 provides a background to the parking issue through a brief historical and cultural analysis of the Northwest neighborhood past and present. It provides an analysis of the parking supply and parking demand using a variety of past studies. The section frames parking in a regional context and includes a presentation of past studies, relevant data and their sources. Section 3 examines policy and program alternatives that may be relevant to Northwest. These "alternatives" are comprised of parking management techniques that have been tried in many municipalities and in other parts Portland. The analysis in Section 3 presents these policies in an objective format. Lastly is an appendix that contains an annotated bibliography, a shared parking study and summaries of major historical documents.
