Save Rockwood from the Rockwood Rising project!

Are you a renter in Rockwood? Do you know how the Rockwood Rising Project could affect you?

We are concerned about who the Rockwood Rising project is designed to benefit, and how the project will affect the broader Rockwood community.

How much upward pressure will this project put on an already strained rental housing market? How does the city of Gresham plan to address rising housing costs and avoid causing mass displacement?

The Gresham city council plans to move forward with this project despite not having answers to these fundamental questions. Fencing has already gone up around Plaza del Sol, the proposed construction site. We need your help to ACT NOW!

Please join us for an event to SAVE ROCKWOOD from 2-5pm on October 15, at 184th Ave/SE Pine St. The purpose of this event is to inform the community about the Rockwood Rising project, gather written and oral testimony from local renters, and encourage folks to attend and speak out at the next Gresham City Council and Redevelopment Commission meetings on October 17 at 3pm.

Please help us get the word out about this event!
