In 2008, after many years of work by community stakeholders, the Lake Grove Village Center Plan was adopted by the City Council. The Plan provides a framework and outlines implementation measures to achieve the community’s vision for a welcoming, mixed-use, and pedestrian-friendly neighborhood community in Lake Grove. The Parking Management Plan is one of the key measures for implementing the vision and addressing some of the issues identified throughout the Lake Grove Village Center planning processes.
The major goals of the Parking Plan project includes working with the community stakeholders in identifying strategies for managing parking in the District, ensuring no net loss of parking resulting from the Boones Ferry Road Improvement Project, and locating three potential locations for public parking facilities. The Parking Plan will also incorporate, where possible, future changes in demand and opportunities for alternative modes of transportation as redevelopment occurs and as the Boones Ferry Road Project is completed with features such as bike lanes and improved pedestrian amenities.
The project is funded by a grant from the Transportation and Growth Management (TGM) Program, a joint program of the Oregon Department of Transportation and the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development. This TGM grant is financed, in part, by federal Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century ("MAP-21"), local government, and State of Oregon funds.
This project will produce the Lake Grove Village Center Parking Management Plan for the Lake Grove Village Center (LGVC). The creation of the Parking Plan will implement one of the measures of the Lake Grove Village Center Plan.
An open house for the project was held at the West End Building on May 7. The project team and Stakeholder Advisory Committee received some great feedback on parking strategies and potential locations for future public parking.
