Where: Corvallis-Benton County Public Library
The City of Corvallis is taking a step back from the immediate issues of the day to reflect on its future. What kind of community do citizens want to live in? What will it look like? What would it be like to live here? How will we know if we’re making progress toward that kind of place or not?
The Imagine Corvallis project is gathering input through public meetings and an online survey. On May 24, the City Club of Corvallis will take a look at this process, review a first draft of the 2040 Vision document and hear from city staff and volunteers about how citizen comments will help shape community goals and lead to the actions necessary to achieve those goals.
Speakers will include Doug Zenn, communications and public involvement specialist with HDR Inc. of Portland; Ann Mbacke, Imagine Corvallis steering committee member; Curtis Wright, chair of the Corvallis Budget Commission; and Penny York, president of the Corvallis City Council.
There will be time for the audience to discuss what they’ve heard and to ask questions. What are the strengths and weaknesses of this process? What might be missing? What’s going well or not so well?
Kent Daniels, City Club member, will moderate. The meeting is free and open to the public. No registration is necessary.
