Rockwood residents who are tired of dealing with drug use and its byproducts
-- graffiti, vandalism, prostitution and theft -- said Thursday they are
encouraged by the proposal, which surfaced six weeks ago as the idea of
a city police detective.
They consider it another important strategy for cleaning up a blighted
area of northwest Gresham that serves as the gateway for the city and a
corridor for drug-dealing along the MAX light-rail line.

"broader conversation" with the public and business community about Fareless
Square's future. He said he has no timetable for making decisions or changes.
Hansen said TriMet's own police staff
as well as the federal Department of Homeland Security have expressed safety
concerns about the fareless policy. Bus riders can board all buses and
trains for free downtown, and MAX train and some buses are free between
downtown and Lloyd Center.

After all, in 20 years, Rockwood has deteriorated from a modest but
respectable middle-class neighborhood to an area struggling with poverty
and crime. The city's jobs-to-housing imbalance is the worst in the metropolitan
area, requiring nearly half of residents to endure long commutes to work.
The civic core along the light-rail line, while soon to trumpet the city's
tallest building, is, in the eyes of city planners, a work in progress.
