Dear Rosewood Community and Partners,

The team here at The Rosewood Initiative is taking COVID-19 and our responsibility to the community very seriously. After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to close the center and cancel gatherings until further notice.

Rosewood Conceptual Neighborhood Master Plan (RCNMP) Engagement

We are happy to share the draft for the Rosewood Conceptual Neighborhood Master Plan. Help us by sharing your voice and thoughts. We want this plan to represent the community and their needs.  The RCNMP will be used to lead our organization mission, influence the work we do and the advocacy we strive for. 

DISCLAIMER: The Rosewood Conceptual Neighborhood Plan, is not a capital development plan nor a project plan for implementation. This plan is an exercise in community opportunities mapping ONLY. None of the sites in this presentation involved participation from the property owners.



We know 2020 has been a tough year for everyone. As one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Oregon, the Rosewood neighborhood has been especially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

Since March we have been creatively engaging with community members most affected by the health and economic crisis; our BIPOC, immigrant and refugee, and low and no-income neighbors. We have grown lasting and meaningful relationships, connecting neighbors to necessary resources and services, support food, rent, and other basic needs, and worked to ensure fair and equitable access to these resources. 

Help us continue this important work by donating to our Give!Guide campaign today.



“I feel prideful to tell people that I volunteer at Rosewood, I love coming here. It brings me joy to be able to contribute to my community, and I keep learning and keep growing in doing so.
