Come learn about graffiti, what some of it means and why we need to clean it up so quickly. Gresham Police Officer Matt Fagan is our local expert on the subject and is a great presenter. We will also have a representative from Code Compliance to talk about why folks may get violation notices around graffiti and again, how important it is to clean it up. Cathy Harrington, Office of Neighborhoods and Community Engagement, will talk about our need for volunteers to help clean it up.
Getting rid of graffiti is everyone’s goal (well, except for the taggers). We hope this community discussion on the topic will not only help educate, but also motivate.

As winter draws near, many residents, both homeowners and renters, will be facing a chilly indoors, coupled with higher energy bills. As utility customers and taxpayers, they are financially supporting a variety of energy efficiency programs that could assist them, and yet they may be unaware of these opportunities. The City of Gresham is offering free energy efficiency information fairs, to raise awareness in the community about the benefits of energy conservation and the opportunities to increase energy efficiency in one's home. Regardless of whether one owns or rents, lives in a single family home, mobile home, apartment or condominium, there are no cost, low cost and advanced energy efficiency opportunities and incentives available.
