PARKING EXEMPTION ZONE <br /> City Manager Mike Gleason introduced the item. He said during the last <br /> council work session on the Urban Renewal Plan Update, council directed staff <br /> to return with information about the possibility of funding parking . <br />e structures outright as opposed to funding the development of parking through <br /> loans. Mr. Gleason said the urban renewal authority is responsible for <br /> making this change in policy. <br /> Bob Hibschman, Planning and Development Department, reviewed the development <br /> projects that may occur within the area proposed for expansion of the parking <br /> exemption zone. One expansion project involves the Hilton Hotel; this <br /> project will cost between $4-6 million and may occur around 1993. The 5th <br /> Street Public Market has indicated a desire to expand on its site; the <br /> project cost is estimated to range between $1.5-$6 million. The Oregon <br /> Electric Station is planning to construct a brew pub at the end of this year; <br /> the project will cost approximately $2 million. Centennial Bank is planning <br /> to construct a new six-story, 98,OOO-square-foot office building; the project <br /> is slated to cost approximately $8.5 million and would require 230 parking <br /> spaces under the current zoning. Mr. Boles noted that the Centennial Bank <br /> project may be much smaller. <br /> Mr. Hibschman reviewed the parking situation faced by Centennial Bank. He <br /> said there is enough room on the site (7th Avenue and Oak Street) to provide <br /> 80 underground parking spaces. Given this, the Centennial Bank development <br /> would be limited to approximately 30,000 square feet in order to comply with <br /> the existing zoning regulations. Mr. Hibschman said the current zoning does <br /> allow a business to provide off-site parking within 400 feet of the site. He <br /> said under current zoning regulations, Centennial Bank would need to acquire <br /> 230 off-site parking spaces in order to develop the 98,000 square foot <br />e MINUTES--City Council-- July 10, 1989 Page 1 <br /> Dinner/Work Session <br /> ~ -..-.. ~ '.... ~-~_.......;. ---- ~ ._- <br />
