Posted Date 1/24/2023

PBOT wants to fully understand parking and transportation issues in Boise so we can come up with equitable and effective solutions. We are seeking 11-15 people to advise us on a comprehensive parking management plan which could include a new kind of parking permit program, with new tools and techniques to try out and potentially parking meters. Members do not need parking expertise but should be familiar with their local area parking patterns and issues.

PBOT is looking for diverse perspectives, interests, and lived experience with parking and transportation in Boise such as residents, employees, regular visitors to the Boise neighborhood, property and business owners, as well as those who fit the descriptions below. It is critical to the success of the project that we hear from everyone directly affected especially:

  • Long-term residents who drive and own vehicles
  • Small business owners or managers
  • Black residents and others displaced from North and Northeast Portland who regularly visit Boise and Albina neighborhoods
  • Employees who live outside the neighborhood
  • Residents with young children
  • Residents and employees with disabilities or who have mobility challenges
  • Renters and residents of multifamily buildings

If your lived experience is not listed, still consider applying.

Members will help advise on every aspect of the plan, including the process for outreach, planning, and decision-making; the boundaries of the study area; the boundaries, hours, and rules of a possible permit program; as well as ways to make any changes to parking more equitable and sustainable.

Members will attend regular Committee meetings, roughly 10-15 meetings between April 2023 and June 2024, about 2 hours per month. Meetings will be open to the public and be held virtually or in a hybrid in-person/virtual format. Members may also attend optional open houses, focus groups, or surveys, but will not be required to do so.

Save the date for the first Committee meeting on either April 10, 12, 18, 19. The meetings will be held on Zoom in the late afternoon or early evening. If you know you cannot make any of these dates, please still apply. We will determine a regular meeting schedule that works for the committee members.

Applications are due by 11:59pm on Tuesday, February 28, 2023. A selection committee made up of volunteers of two existing parking committees, a community representative, along with a member of PBOT's Transportation Justice committee, will review applications. All personal identifying information will be removed before applications are reviewed. The selection committee is seeking to fill 11-15 seats on the Task Force representing a diverse group of perspectives. Staff from PBOT's Parking Operations team and Equity & Inclusion team will approve the final list of members.
