SERVICE DESCRIPTION, FUNDING AND CONTRACTING INFORMATION
PURPOSE AND OVERVIEW
The Multnomah County Department of County Assets, Facilities and Property Management seeks to engage with a highly
qualified team to guide the creation of an innovative Master Plan and development options for the Vance Properties. It is the
intent of the County that the Master Plan will facilitate county program requirements, serve the local community, and address
The Vance properties are located within the City of Gresham, Oregon in the Rockwood and Centennial neighborhoods.
Multnomah County acquired the properties between 1941 - 1961 from private landowners to support the County's
In the early 1940’s there were quarry operations on several western areas of the properties with some that were later converted
to a municipal landfill in the 1960s. These landfill operations ceased by the mid- 1970s. The closed landfill may contain
municipal waste, stumps, brush or any other materials that were permitted to be accepted at a municipal waste facility prior to
the mid 1970s. To the best of the County's knowledge, these facilities were developed without a barrier between the landfill
waste and native soil.
Between 1979 - 1981, the Yeon building was completed and that included transferring municipal waste from the east side of SE
190th to the west side where it was added to an existing closed landfill. A venting system for landfill gases was installed in
compliance with the contemporary regulatory requirements.
In 1974, Multnomah County created Vance Park along 182nd Avenue, and developed it as a Neighborhood park. The park was
to be temporary. In 1988, Multnomah County entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) for the management of
Vance Park. The IGA is attached as "Vance Park IGA." Park use continues as a community benefit to this day.
The entire property is approximately 90 acres; Vance Park is 14 Acres, Vance Pit is 53 Acres and the Yeon Area is 23 Acres.
This process is of interest to the State of Oregon Regional Solutions. The County project team is engaged with the Regional
The County commissioned a Phase 1 Environmental Assessment in 2010 and continues to evaluate the physical and
environmental characteristics of the properties.

uses. The outcome will be a potential redevelopment that optimizes County needs, reflects County values, and provides
Environmental, Site and Code Assessments:
These will include a wide range of technical and non-technical assessments. These assessments will form the core of
information needed to develop the Master Plan alternatives.
Internal and External Stakeholder Outreach:

are adjacent to residential neighborhoods and close to the core of the Rockwood neighborhood. There will be extensive
engagement with both community and agency partners.

Master Plan Development:
The Master Plan process assumes the development of Master Plan alternatives that will be refined to develop a preferred option
and then final Master Plan to support future County operational needs and provide a strong community benefit.
Implementation Plan Development:
The implementation plan will include a proposed phased site development plan that will account for the environmental,
infrastructure, financing options and impacts on County Programs and the Community.
Provide a Gap analysis of the existing environmental reports and historical information presently available for the site to
determine suspected missing information requiring additional investigation. Prepare a listing of additional services with
estimated costs to provide the necessary information to complete an environmental assessment of the existing site as well as

• Provide a site plan to determine options for mitigating liability with the slope that is at the edge of Vance Park.
• Apply environmental public health and environmental justice practices to the site development.
• Create a plan for community engagement in the development of the site that allows for the dissemination of information

enhance the site for County and community uses.
