Be A Weed Watcher
Encroachment by invasive, weedy species like ivy and blackberry directly threatens the health of Gresham's urban forest and leads to weak trees, increased erosion, poor water quality and low biodiversity.

Join us for an Invasive Species Information Fair attended by representatives from the City of Gresham, Metro, Johnson Creek Watershed Council, East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District and the Audubon Society that will follow a 45-minute presentation that will give property owners the knowledge to identify and remove invasive plant species and native replacement options.

Discover Our Feathered Residents
Some of our most familiar birds are the permanent residents that we see in our yards and neighborhoods throughout the year. They are joined by some “winter visitors” and are easily seen at bird feeders during the cold months. These birds are easy to learn because you have excellent chances of seeing them repeatedly. This class will cover some bird feeding basics and identification of the most common birds seen in our yards in winter.

Free. No registration required.

Share Your Opinion
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.
