Residents in North Gresham asked whether they want the city to undergo a project to unscramble a street grid that is not congruent with the rest of the city.

Residents were first notified of this project at the end of November with letters from the city saying that a survey would be coming to gather opinions about changing the street names and addresses in the neighborhood.
The area impacted contains about 1,800 residents and is bounded by Northeast 205th Avenue, Northeast 226th Avenue, Northeast Stark Street and Northeast Burnside Road.
The street names in the neighborhood do not match those in the rest of the city because they were addressed under a different set of standards before the property was annexed into Gresham in the 1990s.
If the city moves forward with the project, the street names would be changed to be consistent with the rest of the city.
