The Powell-Division Transit and Development Project is planning for more reliable, frequent bus transit service that moves more people more quickly between important destinations in Portland and Gresham. It also is looking at opportunities for making even more vibrant, healthy neighborhoods along the route.

Gresham is working with partners including Metro, TriMet, City of Portland, Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and Multnomah County to ensure that land-use and transit alternatives consider and meet the needs of Gresham and bring key investments to improve Gresham’s quality of life.

Gresham also is studying station opportunity areas to identify community interests and develop strategies the City can use to encourage those desired changes. These strategies will be documented in the action plan.

Visit the Park!
Get to know Nadaka Nature Park! This 10-acre forest in northwest Gresham was saved from development for many decades because it served as a day camp for the Camp Fire Organization. Today Nadaka is a city park that provides an island of native habitat and a place for the community to access and learn about nature. Join us for a fun "Walk and Talk tour" to learn the park’s story, restoration challenges and successes, how to identify common native plants and spot spring time invaders, and the top 10 scary weeds to watch out for.

This event is free and suitable for all ages.

More than 75 homes have been designated as historically significant, ranging from Mediterranean mansions to English cottages to Prairie Craftsman homes. We plan to tour two of the three most popular historic bed and breakfast homes in the area–the Queen Anne-style "Lion and the Rose" and the Greek Revival-style "White House." Lunch will be at the Cadillac Café on Broadway.
