Community Enhancement Advisory Committee

  • Oversees Gresham’s share of funds reserved for community enhancement projects through Metro's community enhancement grants. The committee will establish the grant area boundary, develop the grant selection process, review grant proposals, and select grant recipients. 

    Across the Portland metropolitan area, Metro’s community enhancement grants improve economic opportunities, neighborhood livability, public safety and more in areas near the region's garbage transfer facilities. Gresham’s Community Enhancement Program was established in 2017 after the longtime waste collection site on Northwest Birdsdale became a solid waste franchise of Metro.


    The Community Enhancement Advisory Committee meets a minimum of twice annually.
