created in certain areas and neighborhoods in the City of Portland by motor
vehicle congestion, particularly the long-term parking of motor vehicles on the
streets in such areas by commuters not working, conducting business or living in
2. Tittle 16 of the Code of the City of Portland
provides guidelines for the establishment and administration of an Area Parking
3. The Central Eastside Industrial District has
approached the City of Portland to determine if a computer parking problem
exists within the boundaries of middle of East Burnside to the middle of SE
Hawthorne, and from the East bank of the Willamette Rive to the middle of SE
Grand Avenue. City staff has studied the area over the last 6 years and
concluded that a commuter parking problem does exist.
4. The large number of non-area workers parking in the
Central Eastside area makes parking difficult for customers, clients, employees,
residents, and visitors creating a barrier to continued redevelopment of this
important industrial sanctuary area.
5. The Central Eastside Industrial District has met
the necessary program criteria and has indicated by petition and ballot its
desire to participate in an Area Parking Permit Program.
6. That Bureau of Traffic Management has studied the
area, conducted several public meetings and concludes that a commuter parking
problem does exist, and has determined the area meets the necessary program
criteria to establish an Area Parking Permit Program.

implement an Area Parking Permit Program in the Central eastside Industrial
District, subject to the provisions of Tittle 16.20.800 of the Code of the City
of Portland, to be operational prior to August 1, 1988.
