Rockwood Rising Groundbreaking

Join us at this historic event as we officially begin construction of our largest urban redevelopment project - Rockwood Rising. The City of Gresham Redevelopment Commission, RKm Development, Inc. and community partners are creating opportunity and empowerment in the heart of Rockwood through job training and entrepreneurship, a mixed-use village, market hall and community plaza.

Mayor Shane Bemis and other key partners will briefly speak at 3:00 pm, followed by a ceremonial shovel turn.

From 4:00-5:00 pm after groundbreaking, join us in community partner MetroEast Community Media's DIY studio across the street at 484 SE 187th Ave. to celebrate the groundbreaking and start of construction.

There will be opportunity to learn about the future community plaza and playground, new international grocery marketplace and job training opportunities in the project.
