Ebetsu Plaza

The Ebetsu Plaza Dedication

While visiting Gresham in November of 2017, the delegation from Ebetsu joined Mayor Bemis at Main City Park for the announcement of the beginning of Ebetsu Plaza. This event was highlighted by the tree planting event and the presentation of the plaque marking the project. During that presentation, Mayor Bemis and myself announced to those present that we would be providing up dates of the progress of the construction from the beginning to completion. You can find these updates here and on a dedicated Facebook page, The Ebetsu Plaza Project.
