      Land Use Guides and Resources

      Gresham Neighborhood Associations are involved in land use decisions through the early neighborhood notification (ENN) process and through the public comment process. 

      • The ENN process happens before a developer files a development application.
      • The public comment process happens after an application is filed, but before a decision is made.

      Early neighborhood notification guidance

      Neighborhood Association Meetings with prospective developers are an important component of the development application process as they provide an opportunity for the applicant, surrounding neighbors, interested parties and neighborhood association representatives to meet and review development proposals, and identify any issues associated with the project prior to a formal application submittal.
