TPAC Committee

Permit Year 20/21 Updated Information:

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic in the spring of 2020, the 20/21 permit year was delayed two months and will run July 1st, 2020 – April 30, 2021. Zone G and N 2019-2020 permits will be honored through July 31, 2020. Zone N permits not renewed during the 2020-2021 permit year will be eligible for renewal the following year, Zone N permit eligibility in permit year 2021-2022 will be based on permits issued in 2019-2020. Permits are prorated every year halfway through the permit cycle, and due to the delayed start of the permit year, this year’s half-price permit starts December 1, 2020. 

Welcome to members of the TPAC! Working closely with the Office of Community and Civic Life and the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), the recruitment and selection process utilized detailed evaluation criteria in reviewing the 47 applications submitted. The first TPAC meeting with the newly formed committee will occur during the regularly scheduled meeting time on May 27th from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM. This meeting will be virtual, serve as an Orientation, and be open to the public with more details coming soon


The primary goal of the Transportation & Parking Advisory Committee (TPAC) is to leverage the transportation and parking systems to assist, foster, and expand employment and business growth in the Central Eastside Industrial District. 

This includes: improved parking management, freight mobility, ride-sharing and public transport; facilitating bicycle and pedestrian use; and promoting sustainable measures to improve air quality and livability for district residents, employers and employees.

Kate Merrill is the TPAC’s Executive Director. Adrienne Chaillé is the Program Manager for the TPAC.
