    Gang Prevention

    Gang violence is a fast-growing East Multnomah County issue threatening Gresham’s livability and requiring stepped-up, collaborative measures to address the problem. 

    A balance of prevention, intervention and suppression strategies is the only way any community has ever been able to curb the growth of gangs. 


    Both medical marijuana dispensaries and recreational marijuana businesses are subject to City registration, local regulations and requirements of state law.

    Metro Housing Bond

    Metro is working with local partners and communities across the region to develop 3,900 homes for seniors, working families, veterans and others who need them. Metro will implement the bond in partnership with the City of Gresham and six other jurisdictions, each with its own funding allocation and production targets.
