        Land Use Information

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

        These meetings provide an opportunity for the applicant and interested parties to review proposals and identify any potential issues with a development project.

        • ENN takes place before a developer files a development application.
        • Public comment process happens after an application is filed, but before a decision is made.
        • What to expect from ENN meetings
