Mixed Feedback on Munjoy Hill Time-Limited Parking, Resident Permit Parking Proposals

Mixed Feedback on Munjoy Hill Time-Limited Parking, Resident Permit Parking Proposals

At 6pm on Wednesday July 20 at East End Community School, District 1 City Councilor Belinda Ray held a public forum about the possibility of introducing time-limit parking and resident parking permits in a specific area on Munjoy Hill.

Councilor Ray explained that she had received numerous concerns while running for office last fall about the issue of parking on Munjoy Hill. Munjoy Hill residents continually provided her with feedback that they are frustrated because people who work downtown but do not live on the hill are parking on Munjoy Hill and walking to work every morning, leaving their car occupying a parking spot on the hill all day.

Parking Meeting Tonight for Residents of 'Lower Zone 4'

Parking, a long (and hotly) debated issue among Munjoy Hill residents, is the subject of a public meeting tonight to be hosted by City Councilor Belinda Ray.

Beginning at 6:00pm and taking place at East End Community School, Ray and city employees will hold a discussion and take input by residents of a small area of Munjoy Hill regarding the growing challenge of parking within one of Portland's most densely populated neighborhoods. Action items from this forum may serve as a test case for future on-street parking measures aimed at providing better parking access. Some residents fear, however, that the restrictions under discussion may make parking matters worse.
