America's Night Out
Against Crime!

When: Tue Aug 06th, 2013 7-10PM
Where: Your Neighborhood!

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of National Night Out by hosting an event in your neighborhood on August 6th.

Last year millions of people, from every state, across 15,000 communities participated in events to help make communities safe and raise awareness about anticrime programs.

National Night Out is a time when individuals and groups are encourgaged to gather together after dark in parks and other public places for wholesome activities. The idea is to symbolically reclaim our public spaces by using them, encouraging other people to use them and making the space feel safe, and discouraging illegal and anti-social activity.

Go ahead -- invite your neighbors -- gather on someone's lawn or porch and turn-on the lights! Celebrate National Night Out 2013. Take a stand.

Don't let crime control your neighborhood.

Come learn about graffiti, what some of it means and why we need to clean it up so quickly. Gresham Police Officer Matt Fagan is our local expert on the subject and is a great presenter. We will also have a representative from Code Compliance to talk about why folks may get violation notices around graffiti and again, how important it is to clean it up. Cathy Harrington, Office of Neighborhoods and Community Engagement, will talk about our need for volunteers to help clean it up.

Getting rid of graffiti is everyone’s goal (well, except for the taggers). We hope this community discussion on the topic will not only help educate, but also motivate.

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.

Graffiti hurts everyone. It causes property values to decline. Its reduces retail sales and pedestrian traffic. It attracts other forms of crime. And, it costs the city money.

Where: All Broadcast Media
Nationwide

A nationwide live test of the emergency alert system is planned for 11:00AM Pacific Standard Time (2:00PM EST) on Wednesday, Nov 9th.

The three-minute test will go out on radios and TVs, briefly interrupting normal programming.

The test is different than other tests in that it will present itself as an actual emergency announcement, not a test. Doing so allows the Federal Communications Commission and Federal Emergency Management Agency to test reliability of different parts of the emergency notification system chain.

Officials stress that though it will appear there is a real emergency, it is only a test.

Join us to discuss the preferred approaches to removing obstacles to Downtown development by changing the Development Code.

Issues to be explored include floor-area ratio (development intensity), parking and street design.

The Downtown Plan Review project seeks to remove obstacles to Downtown development while retaining the vision of Downtown as: a center for jobs and housing; a thriving and unique entertainment, nightlife and shopping district; and a visually interesting place with buildings and streetscapes of high design quality.

A document that describes the preferred approaches to addressing Downtown Development Code issues is available on the project website.

Residents, business owners, property owners and other interested parties are invited to attend and comment on the proposals.
