$25,000 for Rosewood!

Rosewood! How do we want to spend a $25,000 grant from Portland Development Commission?

The deal:

We need to spend it on a capital project like benches, garbage cans, lighting, storefront improvements, district signage, planters, or public art. The project needs to take place within our district boundaries with PDC, from SE 139th Ave to 162nd Ave on Stark.

Send us your ideas! We’ll be collecting them for the next couple of months and having a formal vote on our priorities in February.

Last night,  Rosewood businesses met to discuss what we could be doing individually and collectively to improve the economic vitality of the neighborhood:
