Public Invited to Attend
When :Tue & Wed Mar 13-14, 2011
Where: Gresham City Hall
East Hill Church
Transportation and economic development plan being discussed for Gresham, Troutdale, Fairview and Wood Village.
Metro regional government is offering two community forums, March 13 & 14, to learn about and participate in the East Metro Connections Plan.
Investing in Gresham and the East Metro area
Federal and state money is shrinking, and when the region makes difficult decisions about who gets it, they reward those cities that agree on near- and long-term priorities. Through an effort called East Metro Connections Plan, Gresham and other east county cities are developing that shared agreement.
Metro will be advocating for federal and state transportation money to make our area more attractive to employers while protecting our neighborhoods, making our roads safer and promoting our treasured natural areas.
Many of you have participated in this effort already. Your input helped identify problems and shaped the solutions Metro is considering. But your role isn’t over. Decisions will be made this spring about how investments will be prioritized. Metro want you to weigh in to tell them what is most important to you.
