The City of Gresham would like to invite you to two workshops this week to discuss the Residential Districts Review project.

The City is trying to determine:

  • What locations are appropriate for low-density and higher-density residential development?
  • How can new development best “fit in” with existing neighborhoods?
  • How should new, innovative housing types and arrangements be allowed?

These meetings will help the City identify problems and work toward encouraging better housing development.

Come join us at Bulter Creek Greenway to say goodbye to Winter and "Hello!" to the planting season by removing English Ivy and planting 500 trees and shrubs . These restoration efforts will encourage native growth within Gresham's natural areas and in return, improve the creek's water quality, increase biodiversity and enhance local habitat.
