Share Your Ideas
Gresham city officials want to hear from the public about the design of the new Rockwood police station. Project architects want to gather community preferences to guide the aesthetics of the new building.

This will be an interactive, drop-in style event (it’s fine to come anytime between 6 and 7:30) with the project architect on-hand. The purpose of the event is to give the design team a good sense of what the community’s preferences regarding the appearance of the building exterior and grounds.

Plan to attend this visioning event and share your ideas for this important addition to our neighborhood.
