PBOT will be implementing the new Lloyd Event Parking District in Fall 2022. This will set higher parking rates during events with over 10,000 attendees in the implementation area beginning on September 1, 2022. Event Districts encourage less driving and more use of public transit, biking, and other alternate means of transportation. This relieves pressure on people who live in the area, reducing traffic, and making it easier for residents and other visitors to find on-street parking.​

Why an Event Parking District?

On-street parking demand is very high in Lloyd and surrounding neighborhoods during events at the Moda Center, Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum and Oregon Convention Center. This makes it difficult for anyone looking for parking on-street in Lloyd during events. It also makes traffic congestion worse for anyone traveling in, to, or through Lloyd and the Rose Quarter.  Go Lloyd has advocated for an Event Parking District for Lloyd since 2012. The Parking Management Manual directs and empowers PBOT to create Event District Parking in existing meter districts where there are large event venues.

The goals of the Event Parking District are to:

  • Encourage event goers to take transit, bike or carpool to events
  • Lower traffic congestion
  • Lower vehicle emissions & improving air quality
  • Make it easier for anyone to park on-street in Lloyd

PBOT will increase the on-street parking rate from $1/hour to $3/hour, and extend the meter hours to 10 p.m. in Lloyd during events to accomplish these goals. Only events with more than 10,000 people will be activate the Event Parking District.

Event District Changes

Adopted changes include:

  • Event district meters in the first-year implementation area will use the event rate of $3 per hour during large events. They are normally $1 per hour when the event district is not in effect.
    • The event rate will be in effect when there is a single event with over 10,000 people scheduled in advance, or there are overlapping events where there are over 10,000 people combined scheduled in advance at the Moda Center, Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum and Oregon Convention Center. 
    • The event rate will not be in effect when there are not large events.
  • The event rate will apply from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. during large events that start at 5 p.m. or earlier.
  • The event rate will apply from 5 to 10 p.m. during large events that start after 5 p.m.
  • Change the hours that meter payment is required on non-event days to end at 6 p.m. in the entire district. Before September 1, 2022, payment is required until 10 p.m. all-year west of Grand Avenue.

Other changes include:

  • Residents that live full-time inside the Lloyd Event District first-year implementation area as of September 1, 2022 will be able to submit information for 1 vehicle to PBOT to join the Lloyd Event Resident Courtesy List. Vehicles on the courtesy list will avoid receiving a citation for no meter receipt (nonpayment) in the first-year implementation area through August 31, 2023 when the event district is in effect.
    • The online form to submit vehicle information is still being developed. Sign up for updates to be notified when residents can submit vehicle information.
    • Eligible residents must submit vehicle information by September 30, 2022.
  • We are also working with Affordable Housing Transportation Wallet staff to develop a program to help off-set the burden to residents who live in the Lloyd Event District from these changes.
