In Oregon, a curb painted yellow means no parking. No parking signs may also be posted to regulate parking along city streets. Street markings are determined using the standard from the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices. Yellow curb painting generally takes place between the months of May and September. The process is weather-dependent, however, so those dates may be adjusted during unseasonably cold or wet conditions.
To report a fading yellow curb or request an area be designated for a yellow curb, call Public Works Maintenance at 541-682-4800 or email PWM.
