TALENT, Ore. -- One year post the devastating events of the Almeda Fire in Southern Oregon, Democratic Representative Pam Marsh for District 5, Southern Jackson County, is hosting "Our Path to Recovery: A Report for District 5" Tuesday, September 14, 6:30-8:00 PM.

Rep. Marsh included in her invitation to community members, "One year after the devastating losses caused by the Almeda Fire, our community has begun to rebound—and much more work lies ahead."

The virtual forum is meant to provide area residents with an account of the progress that has been made and what is still to come.

Local leaders involved with the restoration will share their perspectives on the past year, as well as plans for the next phase of rebuilding and response.

Those leaders include, Talent Mayor Darby Ayers-Flood, Phoenix Mayor Terry Baker, Phoenix-Talent School District Superintendent
Brent Barry, Long Term Recovery Group President Lucy Brossard, District 3 State Senator Jeff Golden, Jackson County Administrator
Danny Jordan, Unete Center for Farmworker Advocacy Program Coordinator Kathy Keesee, and Oregon Housing and Community Services Deputy Director Caleb Yant.

After speaking to community members and leaders, Marsh said housing remains the highest priority around recovery.

"Nothing moves as quickly as we would like. There is still much work ahead, and the actual process of recovery means responding to the full breadth of our population that was displaced. There are still many people who don't have any idea of where their permanent home may be."

From each community participant tomorrow, Marsh says she wants to know the important moments over the past year that need to be acknowledged, the taks that have been checked off on the restoration list, and what work still needs to be done.
