Pay to Park

FEB. 10 UPDATE: As roads are beginning to clear from last week’s snow storm, the City Club will meet At the Boys & Girls Club today.

In a bid to ease parking congestion on residential streets near Oregon State University, the City of Corvallis is weighing a proposal to expand the number of parking districts around the campus. The City’s Urban Services Committee is evaluating the idea, which stems from recommendations by the Collaboration Corvallis Parking and Traffic Work Group, a city-university initiative. While implementation is planned for September 2014, the proposal must receive city council approval before it can go into effect.

At the February 10 Corvallis City Club meeting, three speakers will address the residential parking proposal: Dan Brown, Courtney Cloyd and Steve Clark. Cloyd and Clark are members of the Collaboration Corvallis Parking and Traffic Work Group.

  • Dan Brown serves on the City Council from Ward 4. The retired Oregon State University professor of business is also a member of the City’s Urban Services Committee. 
  • Courtney Cloyd is president of the Central Park Neighborhood Association and has been a resident of Corvallis since 1987.
  • Steve Clark is vice president of OSU’s University Relations and Marketing division. He has more than 25 years of civic engagement in statewide and Portland metro issues.  

City Club meets in the Les Schwab Gym at the Boys & Girls Club, 1112 NW Circle. The meeting will begin at 12 noon, and doors will open at 11:30.  As always, attendance is free. A buffet lunch will be catered by Laughing Planet. The cost is $10 for members, $12 for non-members.  To register, send e-mail to with “City Club February 10” in the subject line by February 7.

IF YOU ARE HAVING LUNCH, please indicate a choice of: 1) Zappatista Salad; 2) Bollywood Bowl; or 3) Spinach and Bean Burrito.
