The Gresham City Council will vote at their 3 PM meeting on Tuesday, August 16th, on putting a bond measure on the November ballot to build a full service community center (like those in Portland or the Tualatin Hills Parks & Recreation District).

Here are links to the meeting agenda & the staff report on the community center construction bond. Per the staff report, if the measure passed, the city would issue up to $48 million in construction bonds and the estimated tax rate would be 35 cents per $1,000 assessed property. The citizen volunteer Finance Committee would monitor bond revenues and project expenditures.

The proposed ballot summary says, "Amenities expected to include pools for lap swimming, swimming lessons, aquatic exercise classes; recreational/leisure pool with large curvy waterslide, water features for family entertainment; senior center providing activities for older adult residents; classroom meeting space for community education courses and children’s programming; gymnasium, workout/exercise facilities and equipment; community meeting space for birthday parties, meetings, community groups, events and celebrations; community kitchen, other amenities. Facilities would be centrally located in Gresham."

Do you know what to do in the case of disaster?
Even if you think you do, there’s always new information to be learned. The city is holding a listening session from 5:45 to 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, at City Council Chambers, 1333 N.W. Eastman Parkway, with the topic of emergency preparedness to help the community prepare for natural disasters.

The session will be hosted by Council President Mario Palmero and Councilors Jerry Hinton and Lori Stegmann.

An 8.9 quake, like the one in Japan in 2011, is only possible in subduction zones, according to the city’s disaster preparedness information. The only U.S. subduction zones in the U.S. are in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.

“I think about an earthquake and I think, ‘Oh, I can’t get water, but I don’t think in terms of I can’t drive because the roads will be literally destroyed or washed away -- that just drove it home even more that people need to make sure at a minimum that they have water,” Stegmann said. “People need to know they could be completely isolated.”

Free refreshments, interpreters and child care will be available.
