Need Parking? Visit Portland

This Friday, the Tacoma City Council's Economic Development Committee will be meeting with the City of Portland's Bureau of Transportation System Management staff, as well as representatives from the Lloyd Center Transportation Management Association (TMA). This author and other representatives from the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber and the Parking Advisory Committee will accompany the elected leaders and City staff on the trip.

Portland's downtown parking system has a much more robust array of revenue sources and provides better management overall than Tacoma's system, at least for now. The group is headed south to learn how Portland's system works and to consider how Tacoma's system might be improved.

Watch this blog on Friday for posts from Portland!

    Great! I just got back from a weekend getaway to Portland. Much to see and do! I hope everyone heading down will plan on sticking around though Sunday when they roll out the vintage streetcar - it does a free loop through downtown.
