Ten years ago voters approved a 20-year urban renewal district bond measure to rebuild the Rockwood Town Center after Fred Meyer closed. Now, with just ten years remaining, millions spent and no viable plan, what will become of Rockwood?

Community Forum
You're invited to attend a community forum for the Central Rockwood Plan Update. This project is intended to ensure the community’s vision for Rockwood can be achieved, and that the rules in place are not a barrier to the desired urban form. The forum will introduce the project, share identified issues, and ask for input on additional issues to study.

Your input is invaluable since you have unique expertise in how the community operates, where improvements may be made, and what is currently working well.
