Park Design Selected

On January 20th 2010 the City of Gresham held a Community Forum regarding the 2-acre Nelson Property Neighborhood Park Master Plan and companion 12-acre Nadaka Vegetation Management Plan.

A Summary Report has been prepared that includes oral comments, written comments, objectives, design narratives, the three design alternatives and other collective information. The Summary Report has been placed on the City webpage and is located here.

You are invited to attend the second Community Forum, scheduled for Wednesday evening, March 31 from 7- 9 pm at Gresham City Hall in Rooms 2A and 2B. At this meeting the Preferred Design Alternative will be presented

A Used Car lot for Wilkes East? Maybe. Deadline for comments is Feb 25th

Wilkes East mortgage broker requests permit to sell used cars too at 178th & Glisan location. 14-day comment period ends Feb 25, 2010.  Info here!

Real Estate, Mortgages, and... Used Cars too?

Wilkes East mortgage broker requests permit to sell used cars at 178th & Glisan location.

Good Idea? Bad Idea?

According to City documents Interbank Mortgage Services has applied for a permit to sell used cars in addition to real estate and mortgage loans on the corner of 178th & NE Glisan. (In this slow economy the temptation to compete with the other used car lot at 163rd & NE Glisan must be too great to resist.)

A notice asking for public comment appeared February 11, 2010 in front of the proposed car lot at 17811 NE Glisan St. Get Map!. View Land Use notice here. If you object to this land use proposal you need to file your comments with the City before February 25, 2010. (See info below)

Landlord decides against proposed Rockwood methadone clinic after public outcry

Landlord decides against proposed Rockwood methadone clinic after public outcry. Mayor says the landlord 'did the right thing', adding 'I think he heard the community.' Read more here!

Gresham Mayor says
landlord "did the right thing"

"I think he heard the community.”

Mayor Shane T. Bemis announced February 10, 2010 that Jack Medak the owner of the building at l9295 E Burnside and potential landlord for a proposed methadone clinic in the Rockwood area of Gresham has decided not to lease his space for that use.

The decision comes after a contentious two-hour meeting held Thursday, Feb. 4, in the building in question at 19295 E Burnside St.

"This is a big win for the people who have been working so hard to raise the tide in Rockwood," said Bemis. "I am tremendously proud of the community for clearly articulating the potential redevelopment obstacles and law enforcement challenges that could come from an additional methadone clinic in the area." Bemis said “I am glad that Mr. Medak did not lease to them,” adding, “He did the right thing. I think he heard the community.”
