Welcome to the beautiful historic City of Portland. We hope you enjoy your visit. We encourage you to make use of our many conveniently located parking garages and lots. For your convenience, we’ve included a link to view the downtown Portland.

The City of Portland enforces parking regulations ranging from meter violations to residential permit parking zones and employs three levels of enforcement of these parking regulations:
  • Issuing parking tickets to vehicles that violate regulations
  • Applying the boot to vehicles that accumulate unpaid tickets
  • In certain cases, towing and impounding vehicles until outstanding fines and fees are paid
In order to help facilitate the parking control officer’s duties appropriately, all PCOs receive extensive training in parking management principles, enforcement directives, and customer service awareness. See our parking regulations section to learn what regulations are enforced.
