Public Encouraged to Attend Vote

The final vote for the East County Courthouse is scheduled Thursday, October 28th. It will be in the boardroom at the Multnomah Building (501 SE Hawthorne) and is on the Board of Commissioners meeting agenda for 10:30am. There will be a brief presentation before public comment, then the final board vote. We are confident about this passing but encourage everyone to show their support, whether that includes attending in person or making public comment at the meeting or through a letter to the Commissioners (contact info below the break).

Ground Preparation Underway

Deconstruction of the existing building (Rockwood Lanes Bowling, Get Map!) has already begun (see photos below) and we anticipate the groundbreaking will be in December (the original plan was January but the project is a little ahead of schedule). According to the timeline, the courthouse will be completed in March of 2012. The design is for two floors and three courtrooms and there will be a final design and timeline available during the presentation on Thursday next week. It will be included in the presentation to the board and accessible through the Weekly Agenda Packet Materials link on the Board Meeting Agenda website beginning next week, October 25th. Once the board votes details will also put it on the Multnomah County East County Courts website.

Safely Dispose of Prescription Drugs

Take Advantage of Fall Prescription Drug Collections and Empty Your Medicine Cabinets. If you have unused or expired prescription medicines in your home, you can dispose of them safely on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Gresham City Hall. Participants will empty their pill bottles into containers at the drop-off site. Liquid medication must stay in the prescription bottle. No intra-venous solutions, injectables, syringes or medical waste will be accept.

Keep Drugs Out of the Water Supply

Sometimes we forget the toilet is not a trash can. The City's Wastewater Services asks residents to help keep water sources clean by not flushing unused medications and personal care products down the toilet or sink. In one national study of 139 streams in 30 states, drugs were found in 80% of the samples. In the Potomac River, male fish were discovered producing eggs. While there is no evidence of risk to human health, these products contain compounds detected in trace amounts in aquatic systems even past the wastewater treatment plant. Read more...

How many people bike, walk, and skateboard on Gresham streets & trails?

Help conduct counts or surveys on trail & sidewalk use in Gresham as part of a nationwide effort

Be counted!
Even if you don't volunteer, please show-up and be counted at one of the locations below if you bike, walk, skateboard, or rollerblade on the trails or streets in the Gresham area. Ed.

Volunteers needed

Gresham is participating in a nationwide effort to document the number of people biking, walking, skateboarding, and rollerblading on trails and local streets. As part of that effort, City staff is asking for volunteers to help conduct counts and surveys.

The counts will be conducted September 14th, 15th, and 16th from 7 to 9 a.m. and 5 to 7 p.m., and September 18th and 19th from 9 to 11 a.m. The City has identified 18 locations where counts will be taken:

  • Marine Dr & I85th Ave
  • 181st Ave & Halsey St
  • Halsey St & 201st Ave
  • Gresham Fairview Trail & Burnside Ave
  • 181st Ave & Division St
  • 181st Ave & Powell Blvd
  • Springwater Trail & Pleasant View Dr
  • Burnside Ave & 223rd Ave
  • Powell Blvd & 223rd Ave
  • Springwater Trail @ Main City Park
  • Cleveland Ave & 5th St
  • Springwater Trail & 242nd/ Hogan Rd
  • Stark St & Kane Dr
  • Kane Dr & Division
  • Kane & Powell Valley
  • 282nd Ave & Lusted Rd
  • 181st & Glisan St
  • 181st & Stark St

Click here for a map of these locations.

Count or Survey?

Volunteers can choose to conduct counts or conduct a short survey. The surveys well help provide information on trip distance, why people use trails, and what types of trials they prefer.

Your participation in this effort will help the City gain valuable information on walking and bicycling:

  • Baseline data: How many people are biking? Walking? Where? What are the volume trends from year to year?
  • What is the return on investment in bike lanes, trails and sidewalks: How many people use bike/pedestrian facilities after they are built?
  • How can safety be improved: Certain locations have high numbers of bike/pedestrian crashes, but what is the risk exposure rate? Is it high or low relative to bike/pedestrian volumes? How should safety improvements be prioritized?
