Public is Invited
Thank you to everyone who participated in the recruitment process for Gresham’s next City Manager. City Council met in Executive Session this week to discuss the next steps. Out of 64 total candidates, City Council narrowed the search to three finalists. However, two of the three withdrew from the process. Given this news, City Council re-evaluated their options and elected to close the current search process. When the recruitment was originally opened, no internal candidates applied for the position. City Council approached former Interim City Manager Eric Schmidt to ask if he would reconsider applying for the job; Mr. Schmidt agreed to participate in an interview.

The community can participate in this interview in the following ways:

  • Community forum: On Tuesday, Jan. 26, from 5:30-6:15 p.m., the community is invited to listen to the interview with City Manager candidate Eric Schmidt, facilitated by Mayor Stovall. Join the Zoom meeting here:

'Green Gresham, Healthy Gresham' Grant Project

The City of Gresham is partnering with Multnomah County Office of Sustainability and Friends of Trees on a grant from East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District (EMSWCD) to get trees surveyed, maintained and planted in the Rockwood, Wilkes East and North Gresham Neighborhoods. From mid- December 2020 to end of February 2021, you may notice a small
crew of three to four members wearing bright fluorescent safety vests, known as the Gresham Tree Team. The 2020 Gresham Tree Team is a group of County staff and interns making the following improvements to your neighborhood:

  • Tree planting activities such as digging holes, planting trees, and moving mulch;
  • Tree surveying and measuring in the public right of way to gather data on the tree type, size, and health; and
  • Tree maintenance in the public right of way along arterial and neighborhood streets.

Gresham Tree Team
From 2018 – 2020 this team has:

  • Inventoried 1300 trees
  • Planted over 300 street and yard trees
  • Recruited 80 homeowners to plant yard trees

This EMSWCD Green Gresham, Healthy Gresham grant project will improve your neighborhood with information on where to plant more trees along with newly planted trees that will help:

  • Cool the urban environment during our hot summers
  • Provide windbreaks and help conserve energy during our cold winters
  • Improve the walking environment and air quality along busy West Gresham streets
  • Reduce water pollution flowing into local streams and waterways

Work will be performed Tuesday through Saturday (9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)

Where: Online meeting via Zoom

Join us for a virtual open house, to be held with two separate one-hour Zoom sessions that fit your schedule.

We'll review:

  • Community feedback on six park concept plan designs
  • Concept plan report outlining potential enhancements for Gresham's six undeveloped parks, which aim to reflect the needs of each neighborhood and the overall Gresham community while also protecting access to nature

A vital part of the City's planning process is hearing from the community, to ensure all voices are heard. Since early 2019, Gresham residents have provided input through online surveys as well as on-site and virtual events. The concepts aim to meet the current and future demands of Gresham's growing population. They also outline financial needs for developing the parks in the future if funding is identified.

A Zoom link to register for this event will be posted soon.

For questions about this event, contact Tina Osterink, Natural Resource Planner at Tina.Osterink@GreshamOregon.gov or 503-618-2392.
