Housing: Vision

The vision of the housing action team is that by 2040, all residents have access to affordable housing options. Housing is energy efficient, provides a healthy living environment, and reduces waste through recycling and preservation; and all new construction minimizes impacts on our resources and environment.


Housing: Goals

Goal 1: By 2025 all residents/households will have access to affordable housing options.*

Goal 2: By 2025, all existing housing in Corvallis will be preserved, adaptively reused or recycled.

Goal 3: By 2025, 100% of new construction will have minimal impact on resources and the environment.

Goal 4: By 2025, chronic homelessness will be reduced by 65%.

Housing: Current Projects
