Why can’t I park on neighborhood streets?
PCC is committed to insuring the livability of the neighborhoods adjacent its campuses. As a result of this commitment PCC has adopted a policy that prohibits students and staff from parking on neighborhood streets when engaged in any PCC related activity.
PCC has signed agreements with the City of Portland and the City of Lake Oswego allowing PCC Parking Enforcement to place Warning Notices on vehicles found parked in the neighborhoods around its various campuses and centers. PCC Parking Enforcement cannot issue parking citations for vehicles blocking driveways, mail boxes, etc. If a vehicle is parked in violation of any City Ordinance then this needs to be reported to the City of Portland Parking Department at 503 823-5195. Any faculty, staff, or student receiving two or more Warning Notices will be mailed a $25 citation for Parking in the Neighborhood. If this fine is not paid within 30 days said fine will double to $50.
Please help PCC be a good neighbor and park on campus when engaged in any PCC related activity. To see a map of the appropriate parking locations, view the various campus maps at PCC locations.
I'm a PCC Neighbor, but I'm still getting citations, what do I do?
Please call Sima in the Parking and Transportation office at 971 722-4703. Sima will need your license plate number and once she confirms that you are a PCC neighbor she will mail out a little blue sticker to place on the lower left corner of your windshield. This little blue sticker is in the shape of a house and says; Portland Community College Neighborhood Parking Permit. Once this sticker is in your vehicle you will never receive another warning.
