Parking enforcement returns to downtown Roseburg

Written by on March 1, 2022

Roseburg, Ore. – Parking enforcement will resume downtown and in the Laurelwood neighborhood beginning in March.

The city has implemented changes following extensive community input on a new parking plan.

A parking services contractor, ACE Parking, will begin more active enforcement after conducting community outreach and education since early February. ACE will electronically chalk cars in time-limited zones and check license plates and parking permits with license plate recognition cameras and software using GPS coordinates.

Drivers who’d like to get parking permits, ask questions or appeal a ticket should contact ACE’s Roseburg Program Administrator Michelle Anderson at 541-900-1102 or roseburgenforcement@aceparking.com, or ACE’s Roseburg Enforcement Manager James English at (O) 541-900-1106 or (C) 541-315-0366 or jenglish@aceparking.com.

City staff will refer questions about tickets to ACE.

City officials expect the changes to benefit residents and businesses by freeing up more on-street parking spaces for short-term customer parking in the heart of Roseburg. A public education period began in December and kicked into high gear in February to give drivers time to learn and adjust before parking tickets are given out.

Now, drivers will see new signs for free but time-limited parking on streets in the downtown core – Jackson Street, Main Street and several cross streets. While the same number of free, on-street customer parking spots remain, most spaces in the downtown core are now limited to two or three hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Metered parking will remain on outlying downtown streets. Free parking also is available at a parking lot at S.E. Cass Avenue and S.E. Rose Street, and on the first floor of the recently cleaned Downtown Parking Garage at S.E. Washington Avenue and S.E. Rose Street.
