Filming in Gresham

  • Gresham's natural beauty and proximity to Portland International Airport makes it a great place to film.

    If you're planning filming or photo production on City property in Gresham, you'll need production insurance and specific, City-issued permits. If filming affects any street, we request 14 days notice for a Event/Street Closure Application. 

    These steps aren't necessary if you're filming on private property with the owner's consent.

    Getting started

    1. Contact Cherie Ludwig at 503-618-2518 to discuss filming in Gresham.
    2. Complete the Event/Street Closure Application
    3. Neighborhood(s) must be notified of your production dates and activities before production begins. Notification may include door hangers, postcards or letters, and must be delivered to all residential homes and businesses likely to be impacted by the production.
