The East County Issue Forum engages individuals and organizations committed to serving the needs of residents in East County.  This includes community groups, faith-based organizations, educational stakeholders, economic and workforce development, health care partners, local law enforcement, human and social service providers, regional government and legislative partners, organizations working to increase access to parks and green spaces, and many others.

Convened monthly by Commissioner Stegmann in partnership with the City of Gresham and East County schools, the group discusses housing stability, parks and community services, youth opportunities, community building events, youth employment, innovations in public safety, and distribution of human/social services.  Topics vary each month and there are always opportunities to provide updates or make presentations. 

The East County Issue Forum is held on the 1st Thursday of each month from 3-5pm at Gresham City Hall (1333 NW Eastman Parkway).  The forum does not meet over the summer.  For more information please connect with the ECIF on social media or contact Commissioner Stegmann's office at or 503-988-5213.
