Hello Zone K permit holders, neighbors, businesses and interested parties:
At the Northwest District Neighborhood Association meeting on Monday September 19, Mayor Sam Adams indicated that Zone K would remain as it currently stands. It would be independent of the proposed Northwest District Parking Plan http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2011/09/northwest_portland_residents_o.html
Thank you to all the Zone K residents, businesses, and permit holders who attended and voiced their concerns. A Special K
thanks to Rich Durant for producing the red Zone K buttons that gave visual presence to the wearer’s support for our parking zone.
The Mayor’s and City’s position affirming Zone K as remaining separate and essentially self governing was confirmed at a NW Parking Stakeholders Advisory Committee meeting at City Hall Tuesday morning, September 20. The new NW District Parking map showing the existing Zone K is in the works by the City staff. You may follow the Northwest District Parking Plan progress and hopefully see the newest map when it is posted at http://www.portlandonline.com/mayor/index.cfm?c=52616
The Zone K Area Parking Committee has created a web site http://www.parkingzonek.com
where you may find the latest information and links about Zone K issues. We have also automated the contact list. If you received this email you are probably already on this list and will continue to receive email updates unless you opt out. Please update your information on the automated contact list by visiting parkingzonek.com, inserting your email address in the ‘Subscribe to our mailing list’ field, and click ‘Subscribe.’ You should then receive a form to update your contact information. Please encourage other residents, businesses and permit holders to join the contact list. Feel free to forward this email.
The next NW Parking Plan event is a public open house on Thursday, October 13, 5:30-7:30pm at the MLC School, 2033 NW Glisan St. The Mayor and City staff will present the updated NW District Parking Plan including adjustments made as a result of public comments and input at the business and neighborhood outreach meetings. At that meeting, we expect the maps to reflect Zone K to be out of the NW District Plan.
