ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The City of Roseburg is trying to improve parking in downtown and the Laurelwood neighborhood, and they’re looking for the public’s input.
The city has put together a Stakeholder Advisory Committee to determine what issues the city faces when it comes to parking, with the help of a consultant.
Members of the SAC said they’ve highlighted solutions like establishing a better enforcement process and creating more free parking. They said they have written up a draft of their plan. Now, they said the public input is the most important part.
“People who have ideas or ways the parking should be done, or approving some of the concepts that do come out, whatever it is, the public’s input is now the most important thing we can have,” said city councilor and SAC member Brian Prawitz.
The city is hosting a virtual open house on Feb. 17.
The SAC hopes to have a concrete plan for a new parking management system by later this year.
