Parking Zone K Updates
Since the creation of the resident-initiated Area Parking Permit Zone K in 1999, the demands for on-street spaces within Zone K have continued to increase. The total number of Zone K permits issued in 2010 was 751. In 2016, it was 1,107. Continued growth in residential development and increased employment within Zone K is expected.
In an attempt to maximize the full use of Zone K resources, the Zone K Committee did a visual inspection of the area in the zone and counted the available spaces. There are roughly 768 available on-street spaces. We also created a list of opportunities to add additional on-street spaces and/or change parking time stays to better fit the needs of Zone K permit holders. This list has been shared with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT). They are reviewing the requests and will implement those that are feasible and do not pose a safety concern.
A pdf file of the on-street inventory, the list of requested changes and opportunities, and a table of Zone K permit totals can be downloaded from our website or directly from this link.
Due to the increasing demand for on-street spaces, effective with the 2017-2018 renewal year, annual guest permits will be eliminated. Daily scratch off permits will still be available for purchase in books of ten for $10 (price unchanged).  The percentage of employee permits available to any business in Zone K will change from 0.75 full time equivalents to 0.70 full time equivalents beginning with the 2017-2018 permit renewals in July. However, the annual permit fee and the number of daily scratch off permits available for purchase will not change.
The Parking Zone K Committee will continue to work with PBOT to optimize on-street parking resources. Please visit our website, to learn more about Parking Zone K, contact the committee and opt into the Parking Zone K email list.
