The Washington Park parking program coordinator is dedicated to managing and leading the work of the Washington Park paid parking program. This is a dynamic position that coordinates and implements all aspects of the pay-to-park program in Washington Park. The day-to-day work includes performing front-line customer service duties, project managing small transportation construction contracts, performing contract compliance functions, and developing and implementing parking policies. The position is within the Security & Emergency Management Division of Portland Parks & Recreation, and reports to the Security and Emergency Manager.
In 2014, a comprehensive pay-to-park and transportation management program was installed in Washington Park.

The position is the champion for the parking fund and works with internal and external stakeholders to develop policies, implement projects, and ensure program transparency to make Washington Park a world-class destination with world-class transportation service.
