TALENT, Ore.- The Jackson County Community Long-Term Recovery Group unveiled Rogue Reimagined on October 23.
This plan is the nation’s first multi-jurisdictional disaster recovery plan which aims to help the community through post-fire recovery in the future while also addressing the remaining needs of today such as accessible and affordable housing, improved evacuation routes, enhanced vegetation management, and more.
“I’m really proud of our community,” JCC Long-Term Recovery Group’s Executive Director Caryn Wheeler Clay said, “We are trailblazers, for better or worse, and so we are leading the state in how we want our community to recover by building this collaborative, multi-jurisdictional report”.
The JCC LTRG has 21 signed partners and has been working toward this plan since 2021. The plan is largely funded by American Red Cross and Business Oregon with additional support from the towns of Phoenix and Talent. The plan is jointly managed by local governments and community organizations.
