What is middle housing?
Middle housing refers to housing types that fill the gap between small apartments and detached single dwellings including duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, cottage clusters, and townhouses.

Get involved

Join us for the Middle Housing Project's first virtual open house Wed. Dec. 16 from 5:30-7:30pm. Please register for the event if you would like to attend. Learn about what to expect from the project and talk to City staff about your questions at this virtual event. You can learn more about the project on the middle housing page.

Gresham's Middle Housing Project includes development code changes that will allow more choices in the types of housing city residents may live in during every phase of their lives. In 2019, the Oregon State legislature passed House Bill (HB) 2001 to help increase the amount and types of housing available to Oregonians. The bill requires Gresham to update the development code by June 30, 2022 to:

  • Allow duplexes on any lot that allows detached single dwellings; and
  • Allow all middle housing types in any area zoned to allow detached single dwellings.

These changes will create more opportunities for renters and homeownership across multiple price levels, and great variety in housing options for a wide range of household structures.

Measure 26-218 is bad for Gresham neighborhoods

Measure 26-218 is bad for Gresham neighborhoods. Info here!

Metro's proposed Clackamas to Columbia River connector will impact school zones and pedestrian traffic on Northeast 181st Avenue

By Mike Elston, President
North Gresham Neighborhood Association

As President of the North Gresham Neighborhood Association, I'm informed about development plans that impact our neighborhood. Recently I became aware of a Metro proposal that'll increase traffic from Clackamas to the Columbia River ("C2C"), largely by routing it down Northeast 181st /182nd. Although the scheme has apparently been in development for years, Metro and the city of Gresham are only now involving North Gresham citizens — at a point where it's nearly a done-deal.

We have a number of concerns about C2C we feel aren't being heard by Metro. We strongly believe this will have the effect of transforming 181st /182nd into another 82nd Avenue. It will certainly increase traffic, which is already a nightmare during rush hour. That, in turn, will negatively impact the three schools along its proposed route as well as pedestrian access to the MAX and to our area's one grocery store.

We're at a loss to understand how this benefits North Gresham (and maybe that's why we weren't informed about the plan until it was too late to have much impact). Metro claims it'll provide jobs, but they're temporary employment during construction and not permanent.

In our view, this only benefits the higher-income residents of Happy Valley at the expense of Gresham's north-end, lower-income neighborhoods.

Funding for the C2C would be provided by the passage of Metro bond measure M 26-218 in November, and our only chance to delay C2C and permit more time for citizen feedback is for the measure to fail.

We therefore, ask for your help. Join us in voting NO on Measure 26-218, November 3, 2020.

It would appear some initial road construction has already started in Clackamas County (172nd/190th connection), as well as nearby at NE 181st and Glisan (Tree removal and road widening).
