The Summer of EMEA has been a summer-long celebration of Economic Development in the East Metro region. Our final even will be hoted by the City of Gresham at the Coho Shelter of Main City Park. This meeting will feature an economic development update from each of our four cities (Gresham, Fairview, Troutdale and Wood village) with a keynote address coming from Oregon Gubernatorial candidate Dr. Bud Pierce.
