Remake Talent has a long-term mission to create innovative solutions and alliances that support an equitable and sustainable recovery in the wake of the Almeda Fire. We achieve this through three primary areas: Planning, Activation, and Accountability.
We invite you to use the buttons below to explore the ways we’re working to rebuild our community.
Remake Talent is focused on expanding capacity within local government planning offices for the immense work of recovery, as well as advocating for upgrades and amendments to our Municipal Code. The goal is to create flexibilities for transitional and long-term housing needs, using the lens of affordability and sustainability. Solid urban planning will lay the groundwork for equitable, innovative, and sustainable redevelopment in the long-term, and is one of the first ways Remake Talent chose to implement its mission. Our Planning Team consists of planning professionals from across the state, land use experts, real estate and GIS professionals, and college interns.
We are a hands-on organization of builders, fabricators, and artists who are working on creating working prototypes for the type of city we want to live in, enlisting collaboration and feedback from the impacted community, and then ramping up production of what works. More than just ideas, we must begin the real work of affecting change and progress within our communities. To that end, Remake Talent partners with skilled individuals and organizations like the Cascade Builders Association to bring good ideas to fruition, and help those in need.
We are creating a coalition of accountability to make sure that redevelopment of the valley happens in an equitable way, taking into account the immense losses of our most vulnerable populations: low-income and Latino families, and the elderly. We may not be able to save every family in the short-term, but we can work to provide for their return and preserve our demographic.
