Gresham City Charter

History of Changes

For agendas and documents visit the City Charter website

The City charter was adopted on May 2, 1978. The City charter may only be amended, repealed or replaced if at least 60% of those voting pass a ballot measure to approve the changes.

The City charter has been revised nine times since its adoption in 1978.

Charter Review Committee
Pursuant to Section 45B of the charter, Gresham City Council will appoint a charter review committee to review the current language of the City's charter.

A charter review committee was appointed by Council on Dec. 17, 2019.

The committee will hold a public hearing on Monday, Feb. 24 at 6:30 pm in the City Hall Conference Center. Your participation in this meeting will provide guidance for the committee as they begin the review process.

Please arrive by 8:45am to sign-in and enjoy some breakfast treats and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. The planting starts at 9:00am. We provide gloves, tools, and planting guidance -- all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather wearing sturdy shoes or boots, and be ready to have fun!

Please note: this park is only accessible via the I-205 Multi-Use Path. There is an approximately 10 - 15 minute walk from the Gateway Transit Center. Volunteers are encouraged to bike to the planting or take public transportation to the transit center and walk from there. Thank you for supporting an alternative approach to arriving at this community event!

Under age 18? A signed youth waiver is required for you to volunteer: www.friendsoftrees.org/youthwaiver. We ask that youth 15 years and younger are accompanied by an adult.
