Longterm Bus Parking in Portland.

So, our cutaway bus did not fit on the driveway as we'd hoped. We've had it parked on the street and have just received a tow warning. We've got 72 hours to find somewhere else for it to live.

Does anyone know of long term parking in Portland, Oregon? The absolute best would be somewhere we could actually work on it but right now, we just need to find a safe place.

Halp!

Yes, but only by leaving Portland altogether.
I have a friend who found a space to work on her bus at Green Anchors in St Johns, but there's strictly no living there and someone else just told me they're not taking any more skoolies.
It's not a very friendly city for anyone looking to live outside the box.

That's awful... I've been looking at moving from the Medford area to the Portland area, but I'm finding that I'm going to have to buy a place with land to do a build out... I'm looking near Hillsboro

It's been one of the hardest aspects of my conversion! For what it's worth, if you wanted to set up a spot like Green Anchors, with space for other people to work on their skoolies, I'd be willing to bet that you could pay the mortgage on that piece of land ;)
And there are some really pretty areas out by Hillsboro (though not necessarily the town itself).

Have you talked to ADX yet? I know they had someone building a tumbleweed home in their parking lot a couple years back, I've been hoping to hit them up for space when it comes time to build my skoolie. But yeah, finding a good spot to store/build in Portland is going to be one of my first hurdles, too!
