The Nob Hill neighborhood in Northwest Portland could be adding some new parking meters if the City Council approves it. A proposed plan would expand the area where paid parking is enforced and extend hours in some parts of the area.
The plan would change many of the three-hour and 90-minute parking spaces to four-hour stalls. Retail-heavy streets, like 21st and 23rd avenues would have about 80 percent four-hour spaces and 20 percent two-hour spaces. Residential areas would have four-hour parking spaces with one short-term space at the corner of each block.
The plan also calls for meters to be extend on 21st and 23rd from Pettygrove to Vaughn.
The plan would also limit annual $60 parking permits to the streets between Interstate 405 and NW 25th.
If approved, the new parking meters would be installed in January 2014.
