Council listening session seeks community input on housing

September 17, 2019

Gresham City Council will report the final recommendations from the Gresham Housing Task Force, answer questions and gather input from the community at this listening session event. Everyone is welcome on Tuesday, September 24, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the St. Aidan's Episcopal Church, 17405 NE Glisan St.

The event is hosted by City Councilors Janine Gladfelter, Eddy Morales and David Widmark. A brief presentation on the City’s work on housing will be followed by interactive, small group discussions. Issues discussed will include:

  • How can the City help residents find, and stay in, their home?
  • What can the City do to build new housing?
  • How will new state rules affect Gresham?
  • The Metro affordable housing bond 

At the Listening Session, free light refreshments will be available. Children are welcome, and free childcare will be offered. Translation services are available: request in advance by September 19 to Elizabeth Coffey at Elizabeth.Coffey@GreshamOregon.gov or 503-618-2247.

Two Council Listening Sessions were held earlier in 2019 on the topics of homelessness and public safety. More information at GreshamOregon.gov/Council-Listening-Sessions.
