Hello,

I trust that this finds you well, and enjoying the beginning of fall.

There are two recent news items significant to Ward 7 and to the city.
First, there will be a city-sponsored land use conversation workshop on Monday Sept 25 from 4:00PM to 8:00 at the Walnut Community Room (fire station #5). City staff will be present.
Second, this winter there will be a cold-weather shelter for homeless men, on Chapman Place just south of the Mary's River bridge. The shelter will be open from about November 1 through the end of March 2018.
The emails below have more detailed information.

This Saturday, Sept 23, I will host a government comment corner at the public library, from 10:00AM to noon. Stop by with questions or suggestions or just to chat.

Enjoy the weekend.

Best wishes,
Bill Glassmire





What's your vision for your neighborhood? Let us know on Sept. 25

The City of Corvallis is updating its land use policies, and city planners want feedback from the community about land use their neighborhoods. The third of four "Community Conversations on Land Use" is coming up on Monday, September 25 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Walnut Community Room, 4950 NW Fair Oaks Dr.

The public is invited to attend this informal workshop-style event by dropping in anytime from 4 to 8 p.m. when it best fits their schedule. Participants can explore maps and materials, talk to facilitators and other participants, and share their opinions about how different areas in the community should develop in the future.

City planners will offer a brief overview presentation to discuss way to provide feedback, but participants aren't required to attend the presentation and can drop in anytime. Input will be collected through a survey, which will be available on paper or electronically, so community members are encouraged to bring a smart phone, tablet, or laptop to take the survey online. Six different surveys are available, representing six different study areas in Corvallis.

The City is seeking input on all aspects of Corvallis land use planning, so community members are encouraged to provide feedback on one, a few, or all of the study areas. Please join us as we explore this important topic and plan for the future of our community.

The Corvallis Men's Shelter will be located at 211 SE Chapman Place for the 2017-2018 winter season.  A webpage has been created (http://bentonhoac.com/corvallis-mens-shelter/) to share information about the shelter, which includes:

  *   Volunteer opportunities to help with the renovation of the space.  Leadership of the renovation effort is being provided through Benton Habitat for Humanity.  The page includes information on how to see what volunteer events are planned, and how to sign up as a volunteer.
  *   Volunteer opportunities to staff the shelter during the 2017-2018 winter season.  As in past years, staffing will be provided by a mix of paid and volunteer staff.  Volunteer coordination is being provided by a team from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis.  The page includes information on how to sign up as a volunteer.
  *   Donations may be made through several channels to support the shelter renovation and operations.  Information on donation opportunities is available on the page, and will be updated with more specifics on material donation needs shortly.
  *   Policies and procedures for staff and volunteers are currently being reviewed, and will be shared through this page when available.

The Corvallis Men's Shelter would not be possible without the support of our many community partners and volunteers -- thank you for your support!
