To Ward7 list-serve: September 2017 update. Bill Glassmire

September 11, 2017

I trust that this finds you well.

Attached is a three-month schedule of city council business. There is a three-month schedule in each council packet, usually on page four.

In September the city is organizing four "community conversations" about land use planning. City planning staff will be available for questions at each event. The first of the four has already occurred (my apologies!). The most convenient session for Ward 7 is at the Walnut community room, on Monday September 25 from 4:00PM to 8:00.

"Community Conversations" workshop series to focus on land use

 The City of Corvallis is launching a series of community workshops in September to gather input on land use needs, challenges and opportunities on the horizon. Participants will be invited to share their thoughts on what they would like to see preserved or changed in the city's land use plans for the future.
City planners will use the data to inform additional public input processes, planning documents and regulations.
The "Community Conversations" workshop series is the first step in incorporating the goals of Imagine Corvallis 2040, the community's long-range vision, into upcoming City projects and planning efforts. The first batch of events will take place in September at locations throughout Corvallis.

September 11, 4 to 6 p.m., Library Main Meeting Room

September 16, 10 a.m. to noon, Lincoln Elementary School

September 25, 4 to 8 p.m., Walnut Community Room

September 28, 4 to 8 p.m., Cheldelin Middle School

The events are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Anyone who can’t attend a workshop can still make their voice heard through an online survey that will be posted online at www.corvallisoregon.gov/landuse.

There will be a cold-weather shelter in the winter of 2017-18, at the old Hanson Tire workshop on Chapman Place, near First Alternative south store. A workgroup from the city, the county, and nonprofits met since autumn 2016 to try to find a permanent site; the Hanson Tire site was made available in August, only for the winter of 2017-18.

The council continues working toward a Climate Action Advisory Board. An important issue is, is there money in the 2017-18 budget to support two new advisory boards, one for climate action and one for the Imagine Corvallis Action Network? ICAN is charged to carry out the city vision Imagine Corvallis 2040.

I recommend biking (or driving) by the new street mural at the intersection of 11th Street and Taylor Avenue. Enjoy the coming of autumn.

Best wishes,
Bill Glassmire
