Talent Residents Upset with Asphalt Plant
Several Talent residents told Jackson County Commissioners they are unhappy the Mountain View Paving’s asphalt plant is still operating in the face of, what they view, is a ruling the plant is illegal.
The county hearings officer overturned a county staff decision declaring the plant a legal, non-conforming use, but also ruled portions of the plant are allowed as a continuing, non-conforming use.
Talent residents have complained of dust, noise, and odor rising from the operation. The 11-acre site is located in the flood plain between Interstate-5 and Bear Creek south of exit 21.
