Multnomah County invites the public to visit a virtual open house that will share information and seek input about the future of its Vance properties in the west Gresham neighborhoods of Rockwood and Centennial. The open house is available online through May 2 in English (, Spanish ( and Russian (

Multnomah County owns 87 acres in an area between 182nd and 193rd Avenues and between SE Yamhill Street and SE Lincoln Street. Several county buildings are on the site, in addition to open space, a park, and areas that will require preparation before development can occur. Two active gravel quarries border the site. A consultant team is helping the county develop a master plan for the future use of the property. The open house is an opportunity for the public to learn about the existing site, initial ideas for development, and share input.

The open house includes:

  • Project background
  • Virtual site tour
  • Community engagement
  • Initial design ideas
  • Questions about what you would like to see

Information is presented in English, Spanish and Russian.

It will take several years before any developments are built but a master plan is expected to be approved this year that will guide future development.
