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.
