We connect and empower Rosewood neighbors to build a safe, prosperous, vibrant and inclusive community.
We are building a safe, healthy, respectful, vibrant and inclusive community that brings prosperity to everyone in Rosewood. We are empowering community members to drive meaningful, and positive change in partnership with agencies across Portland, Gresham and Multnomah County jurisdictions. Residents and businesses connect with one another to align resources and achieve shared goals. We are utilizing strengths in the community to build a positive image and future for the common good of Rosewood.
We are envisioning a neighborhood where people want to live and where local businesses thrive with community support. We want it to be safe to walk at all times of the day and night. The major commercial centers at SE 162nd and Stark and SE 148th and Stark will be economically vibrant and convenient by a variety of modes of transportation. There will be good connections from these commercial centers to MAX Light Rail on Burnside. Local residents will have better accessibility to community assets through improved walking and biking connections. Cohesive design elements will tie the district together and create a beautiful environment that people take pride in. We will create mentorship and apprenticeship opportunities to empower vulnerable community members, especially youth, people of color, immigrants, New Portlanders, people with disabilities, and people in poverty. Residents and businesses will celebrate the rich cultural diversity and history of Rosewood, attracting long-term residents, businesses and visitors alike.
