[Info below was current as of 4/19/2021]

In Step 2, cleanup crews hired by the State are removing ash, debris, and hazard trees from burned properties. Cleanup is occurring in two tiered phases (described below).  Efficiency and safety are top priorites for planning the work, so large crews will mobilize to complete an entire neighborhood at once prior to moving to other areas. The Jackson County Debris Removal Taskforce, a cooperation between Phoenix, Talent, and Jackson County, has prioritized the cleanup effort as follows:

  • Samuel Loop Subdivision, Phoenix, Samuel Lane Loop Road. (single family)

Within each tier, multiple areas will be worked simultaneously, and not necessarily in the order listed.  Scheduling of cleanup activities will be based on situational conditions. As FEMA continues to refine their plans and complete agreements with selected mobile home park owners, these priorities may change to clean up those mobile home parks where FEMA will place trailers for direct temporary housing.  For more information about cleanup priorities, download the 'General Guiding Principles for Almeda Cleanup' document below.

When the State-led cleanup is complete on a property, the State will issue the participating property owner a notice stating debris has been removed, soil has been tested, and the Right of Entry is no longer in effect.  After this completion notice is issued, the property is cleared for rebuilding. 

To participate in Step 2 cleanup, property owners must complete a Right of Entry form and the property cleanup questionnaire.  

More information is available at wildfire.oregon.gov/cleanup or by calling 503-934-1700.

It is estimated to take 6-18 months to complete all properties, depending on weather and property access limitations.  You can subscribe to get email updates regarding cleanup progress.
