Sustainable development -- Oregon -- Gresham, Sustainability -- Economic aspects, City planning -- Oregon -- Portland Metropolitan Area
The Map Gresham project was a five-month long planning process led by Camassia Community Planning (CCP) to create “opportunity maps” and an Opportunity Framework Plan for the City of Gresham, OR. Opportunity mapping is a relatively new planning method for analyzing the spatial distribution of indicators linked to opportunity and determining which populations have access to these factors.
The overarching objective of the Framework Plan is to improve equitable access to opportunities for Gresham’s neighborhoods and diverse populations. We created the plan by putting community at the center and collaborating with local organizations, technical advisors, and City staff. It includes nine goals and 25 actions related to: public involvement, housing, transportation, food access, employment, education, health & human services, parks, and safety.
This project was conducted under the supervision of Sy Adler, Lisa Bates, Gil Kelley, Andrée Tremoulet and Marisa Zapata.
