    • Monique Gaskins
  • PBOT Lloyd Event Parking District Presentation – Kathryn Doherty-Chapman
    • During games/concerts/big conventions – how can we encourage people not to park on the streets?
    • Lloyd focused but touches Eliot.
    • Once PBOT goes before City Council on this, they will seek to start the rate increase during events at $3/hr.

    • PBOT is continuing to focus on the parking study in Northeast/Boise/Eliot over the coming years.

      • Rate increase during games and events in the evening/some day time event
      • Annual rate changes based on data
    • LUTC agreeing to write a letter of support of the Lloyd Event Parking District Plan as long as it dovetails into productive results in the future with the North Portland Parking Management Plan.  Eliot doesn’t want to get stuck with vehicles moving north to avoid the meters and no other benefit to the Eliot Neighborhood.
