Number of Oregon recreational boating deaths down in 2022

Oregon recorded 16 recreational boating deaths in 2022, which is down compared to the past two years and the lowest since 2017, according to data from the Oregon State Marine Board. In 2020, Oregon recorded 27 deaths, the highest in over three decades, as a wave of new users purchased boats and took to the water during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. That number dropped to 19 in 2021. Fatal accidents were likely down somewhat due to the cold spring that kept many boaters off the water during what’s been one of the most dangerous times for boating accidents.

Talent officials seeking more feedback on updated urban renewal proposal

Talent city officials presented a draft urban renewal plan Tuesday to the Jackson County Board of Commissioners aimed at helping the city recover from the 2020 Almeda Fire that destroyed half of its housing and businesses. Officials first met with the board last July to discuss the plan but have since drastically scaled it down in size to focus solely on fire recovery efforts. Jackson County Administrator Danny Jordan asked the city if it might be better to wait a year, but Talent City Manager Jordan Rooklyn said the city needs to move now. “The projects we’re hoping to address are not 10-15 year projects we want to get done,” Rooklyn said.
