Housing Oregon Members Coalición Fortaleza and CASA of Oregon

Talent Mobile Estates (TME) is a recently renovated 89-space manufactured dwelling park which was substantially destroyed during the 2020 Almeda wildfire. CASA of Oregon, its local partner Coalićion Fortaleza, and Salazar Architect, have implemented a thoughtful housing needs assessment and community engagement process, which may alter the current site plan based upon the needs of the displaced households. The park is currently designed with a total of eighty-nine lots accommodating up to two hundred residents on an 8.43-acre lot. The renovations include new home pad, new water and sanitary sewer piping and new electrical pedestals and transformers. CASA will operate the property for three years at which time the park will be converted to resident ownership.
