Subject of rulemaking placed on agency rulemaking agenda
Enterprise Services is addressing issues with overnight and extended parking on Deschutes Parkway that are raising concerns about public health, safety and the environment. A rulemaking process is required before the agency can adopt enforceable restrictions on parking.
The agency has filed a formal notice (CR 101) to conduct rulemaking to adopt enforceable restrictions on parking on the Capitol Campus, with a focus on Deschutes Parkway. DES is committed to a robust process that includes stakeholder input and to finding a solution that is sustainable, defensible and fair.
