In June 2013, the City Council authorized the City to apply for a Transportation and Growth Management (TGM) grant from Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to fund a Lake Grove Village Center Parking Plan. The Parking Plan was identified as a key measure for addressing some of the major issues highlighted during the planning work for the Lake Grove Village Center Plan. The adopted Lake Grove Village Center Plan includes a policy that states there will be no net loss of parking as a result of improvements to Boones Ferry Road and that public parking facilities will be identified and developed at convenient locations throughout the Village Center.
The key outcome of the project is a parking management plan that is supported by the neighborhoods and businesses, includes overall parking management strategies in the District, identifies at least three potential sites for public parking facilities, proposes adoption ready code language, and estimates implementation costs.
The TGM program is a joint program between the Oregon Department of Transportation and the Oregon Department of Land Conservation. The program includes grants for local governments for transportation planning projects and is financed with federal funds with a local match. The project must be completed by July 1, 2015.
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 a provision of the LGVC plan.
The transportation relationships and benefits of this Project include:
On September 2, 2014, the City Council authorized the mayor to sign an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with ODOT for receipt of the Transportation and Growth Management Grant and endorse selections for the Stakeholder Advisory Committee.
