TALENT, Ore. —Ground was broken Monday on the Gateway Transitional Housing Project.
The 53 space site will add transitional housing in Phoenix and Talent for families in the Phoenix-Talent School District that are still looking for housing.
It was made possible by a $1.7 million donation from the state and another separate donation from Medford-based People’s Bank.
The Talent Urban Renewal Agency, Talent’s mayor, and the community all came together to celebrate the exciting moment.
