The City wants to understand how getting around town can help you stay active, fit and healthy. Join us for a 2.2-mile walk from Gresham's Civic Center on Eastman Parkway to the new Rockwood Rising site on 187th and Stark Street. Along the walk, we want to hear from you about what street improvements would make walking and biking easier, safer and more enjoyable in Gresham. Slip on your walking shoes and join us.
Families, strollers and mobile chairs are welcome.

Language translation other than English available upon request; call 971-231-7426 to schedule.

12:00 - 2:00 pm: Eat

At the Rockwood Rising site, come out to see what plans the Gresham Redevelopment Commission has been cooking up for a new Rockwood town center. Sample free foods from many different cultural cuisines from local entrepreneurs and food vendors. Learn what types of programs and services could be located there, and how you and your family can give input about what you'd like to see there.

Rockwood Rising! A Dynamic mixed-use program. Creating an economic engine to transform Rockwood into a prosperous, healthy, and thriving community. We are beginning design. Help us this June. Info here!

We are beginning design. Help us this June!

WHAT IT IS: We're creating an economic engine to transform Rockwood into a prosperous, healthy, and thriving community that welcomes and creates opportunities for all.

WHERE: A 5.5-acre Commission owned property at 18535 SE Stark Street - the former Fred Meyer site. We are designing several new buildings and a public plaza.

Hello Rockwood,
My name is Roy Kim and my company, RKm Development, has partnered with the Gresham Redevelopment Commission (GRDC) for the exciting development of the Rockwood Rising site. We are honored and eager to have this opportunity to create a new community gathering place in the heart of your energetic, growing community.

Our experienced staff of designers is currently engaged in the extensive planning process, along with our friends at GRDC. We are working with YBA Architects, Place Studio, and Robert Foster Associates to develop a space that this community will be proud to call its own.

Rockwood is a special place. We want to create a space thoughtfully and carefully, with the hopes of building something that everyone can take pride in and engage with. Your help will be critical to designing, developing, and building a community that meets your needs. We look forward to the opportunity to design this together, and hope to see you at Rock the Block on June 3rd & 4th!

Additionally, we want to learn more about you! You can call us at: (503)618-2416, or email us at: rockwoodrising@greshamoregon.gov.

Thank you, Rockwood community, for allowing us the opportunity. Together, I wholeheartedly believe that we can make Rockwood rise.

Sincerely,
Roy Kim
