a joint fundraising initiative sponsored by the 2018 & 2019 
Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce Leadership Academies


The purpose of this project is to raise funds for the purchase of new signage for our Main City Park in Gresham. We love our park and want you to love it too! It's really a hidden gem...but that's the problem - we don't want it to be hidden!

There are so many great features that Main City Park has to offer that we want everyone to know about. New signage will increase the park's visibility and draw our community to this natural treasure. 


The first Leadership Academy class presented the challenge of finding a community project for the second class to complete. The following slideshow is a compilation of our research leading up to the creation of the Main City Park Project.

This project is now being carried on by the current Leadership Academy class.

funding goal


  • $8000 - LARGE SIGN ON POWELL This is the largest sign and the majority of the cost involved.

  • $1000 - WAYFINDER SIGN This is a signpost within the park that will point to all of the park's great features. 

  • $1000 - GRAPHIC WRAP This is a vinyl sign wrap that will cover the power box on the corner of Main and Powell.
