PROBLEMS WITH CARS PARKED IN FRONT OF YOUR HOME

Posted by Gloria Dangerfield on May 31, 2016 at 9:06am 0 Comments

Sometime ago, I voiced my issues with cars left parked in front of my home and the lack of DOT's response.  The current parking limit of 72 hrs. is outdated.  Calls I make to report violation of this law goes unheeded.  Case in point, called Thursday, May 26 to report a car parked on Tuesday, May 24; of course, they sent no one out and the car is still parked there.  I am fed up with our neighborhoods being cluttered with cars.  As a tax paying citizen, I expect to get the same response as…

A sidewalk detour in Kassel, Germany. Portland’s new rules recommend a similar approach.

      2nd annual jazz charity event for survivors/orphans of the Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami of 2011.

In particular, we believe supporting children is the most important thing we can do to help.
