For the purposes of ORS 223.810, a city may acquire property at or below the surface of the earth, by purchase, condemnation,
exchange or other lawful manner. However, a city may not so acquire privately owned property used for public parking
unless the facility to be constructed by the city would substantially increase the
number of vehicle off-street parking spaces available for public use. The city may use the area below the street surface or the area beneath the surface
of a park or other public property.
