During the week of Oct. 24-29, you might see people walking around the Eliot neighborhood with clipboards writing down vehicle information. A parking consultant firm has been retained by the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) to conduct an on-street parking utilization study of the Eliot neighborhood. These personnel have authorization to collect vehicle information for the purposes of the data collection on behalf of the bureau. They will be collecting license plate numbers in order to get an accurate understanding of the turnover in the area. The license plate information will not be stored and no personal identification information will be collected. All vehicle information will be aggregated so no individual vehicle information will be available to the bureau or to the public. The surveyors will be out from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Questions? Contact PBOT Project Manager Kathryn Doherty-Chapman at 503-823-4761.
