Rapid Response Team

  • We understand time is money during industrial expansion and relocation projects.

    Gresham's Rapid Response Team is ready to assist with your expansion or relocation project. We'll work closely with your company from the very start of the project to ensure a smooth process and build a supportive partnership.

    How it works

    The City has a 66-day timeline in place for industrial land use review and approval for traded sector businesses.

    Our staff is your advocate when your company embarks upon an expansion or relocation. We document your project needs and immediately assemble our team of experts from all relevant City departments to streamline and simplify the land use review and permitting process, saving your valuable time.

    Team troubleshooting includes:

    • Development and permit approvals
    • Environmental regulations
    • Land use guidelines
    • Stormwater management
    • System development charges
    • Traffic impact fees
    • Transportation and/or access issues
    • Water and/or power quality and availability 

    Rapid Response success

The City's approach to industrial business attraction and retention is a great asset to economic development in the Portland metro region."
