Imagine Corvallis 2040 explores the community’s vision for our future. The vision was adopted by City Council on Nov. 21, 2016.
The vision is organized into six focus areas to help community members envision all aspects of life when imagining our future in 2040. Corvallis city government will lead in the implementation of Imagine Corvallis 2040: Our Community Vision in Action, and will seek to partner and collaborate with individuals and groups that have an interest, contribute talent and/or bring resources to put the community's vision into practice.
