Declaration of Cooperation signing event, December 10, 2010.

In the fall OF 2009, Oregon Solutions facilitated a process, involving many potential stakeholders -- to work build a framework for a multi-agency agreement.

That process culminated on December 10, 2010, with the signing of a Gateway Green Declaration of Cooperation, in which each of 22 organization/agency stated explicitly what it will do to help make the project a reality.

Among other things, the group agreed that, once built, the City of Portland will be the lead agency but the project will be governed by a Consortium Agreement between Portland Parks & Recreation and several other key stakeholders -- a group to be called the Gateway Green Governing Group (4G).

Subsequentl work led to the signing, in February 2012, of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R), outlining the terms and process to be completed in order to transfer the land.
