CITY OF NEWPORT ANNOUNCES VACANCIES ON PARKING ADVISORY COMMITTEE

CITY OF NEWPORT ANNOUNCES VACANCIES ON PARKING ADVISORY COMMITTEE

The City of Newport is recruiting volunteers to serve on its Parking Advisory Committee representing the Nye Beach and City Center areas. There is one position for each of these areas open at this time.

The Parking Advisory Committee is tasked with engaging policy makers, city committees, staff, and partner organizations to plan for and facilitate the implementation of parking and other transportation related improvements. This could include providing recommendations related to city parking policies and programs, maintenance, fees, wayfinding, transit, sidewalk connectivity and parking enforcement. The Committee will also advocate and promote public awareness of parking and related initiatives, community engagement and other efforts to achieve desired policy outcomes.

The Committee’s initial work will likely focus on assisting staff in implementing the City’s Parking Management Plan approved in 2020. That plan recommends a parking meter, permit, and timed parking program for the Bayfront to improve vehicle turnover, enhance safety, and reduce congestion. The group would also be working with businesses and residents in Nye Beach to see if a non-metering concept that focuses on fees, permit parking, or other dedicated funding sources would be viable. Interested persons can apply online at https://www.newportoregon.gov/citygov/comm/vacancies.asp.

The application deadline is July 21, 2022.
