Property owners, stakeholders and interested parties are invited to attend a community forum for the Rockwood Design Standards project. This project is intended to implement the vision for Rockwood by establishing an urban design framework and then creating regulations to ensure that the physical environment in Rockwood—its buildings, streetscapes, pedestrian environments and open spaces—match that vision for a quality place. The project regulations will also:

  • Promote a sense of community and livability
  • Identify elements of good building and site design
  • Support the City's sustainability goals
  • Address safety issues

This forum is intended to introduce the project, evaluate the draft principles and establish an urban form for the heart of Rockwood that will inform the development of design and policy recommendations. The evening will include an open house at 6:30, a presentation and large group discussion starting at 6:45, and small group work sessions to conclude the evening.

East County Justice Center debacle

Members of East Portland communities are increasingly concerned about the Rockwood Public Safety presence now and in future. Most notably, East Portlander's are very concerned about the East County Justice Center debacle.

County changes direction on project

Multnomah County was scheduled to build a full service Justice Facility, including courthouses, community space, sheriff's office and other facilities in Rockwood. The Rockwood Bowling alley at 187th & SE Stark St was purchased for this project. Multnomah County has reconsidered this project, and is planning on building courthouses in downtown Gresham instead.

Attend the public forum

The Rockwood Neighborhood Association is co-sponsoring a forum May 12th to discuss the Justice Center, Courts and Public Safety as components in Rockwood's Urban Renewal efforts.

Attendees

  • Multnomah County Chair Ted Wheeler
  • Multnomah County Commissioner Diane McKeel
  • Multnomah District Attorney Michael Shrunk
  • Multnomah County Judge Edward Jones
  • Gresham Mayor Shane Bemis
  • Gresham Councilors Richard Strathern & Paul Warr-King
  • Gresham Police Chief Craig Junginger
  • East Precinct Police Commander Mike Crebs

Everyone is urged to attend this important meeting and show support for this very important part of Rockwood's future. Several important questions will be asked and answered. The public is invited to ask questions too.
