Downtown Parking Study

Downtown Oregon CityIn order to find a solution to the downtown parking issues, the City of Oregon City and Clackamas County employed Rick Williams Consulting to facilitate a study of downtown parking and provide recommendations to address the various needs and competing uses.

The study process and its ensuing recommendations were initiated by the City in association with a Parking Stakeholders' Advisory Committee (SAC), comprised of representatives of retail and commercial businesses, the development community, citizens, County and City staff.

The purpose of the study was to evaluate existing downtown parking policies, standards and actual usage as well as to develop a comprehensive parking management plan that responds to the unique access environment, goals and objectives of Downtown Oregon City.

The parking management plan and the process to develop it are compiled and summarized in the Final Parking Study Report (PDF).
