TALENT, Ore. -- The Talent Urban Renewal Agency began the process for the Gateway project back in 2006 and now it is one step closer to being finished.
On Wednesday, December 5th the City of Talent and TURA will be meeting with the public to discuss an upcoming feasibility study to decide what businesses will be a part of the lot off the intersection of W Valley View Rd. and Hwy 99.
"We are just coming out of the visionary process and going into the feasibility process. It will be on the other side that we will start to develop the terms of the deal with our private partners and also what's going to work for us and what is not going to work for us," said Mayor Darby Ayers-Flood.
The community will have a chance to attend the meeting on Dec. 5th as well as two open houses that are created for the purpose of discussion. TURA says they want the communities input into what goes into the new development.
Right now no businesses or organizations have been selected for the new area. According the Mayor Ayers-Flood, at this time all suggestions are simply propositions.
