The meeting featured presentations on accomplishments of 2014 and plans for 2015. The Coalition has been working on a wide variety of projects in 12 topic areas: Community Inclusion, Economic Vitality, Education, Energy, Food, Health and Human Services, Housing, Land Use, Natural Areas, Transportation, Waste Prevention, and Water. Their efforts are directed toward goals outlined in Community Sustainability: A Framework for Action, which was developed in 2008 and revised in 2013 with extensive community participation.
A highlight of the Annual Meeting was the recognition of those businesses that have been nominated for this year’s “Good Steward of the Planet” award. This award was one of several given by the Corvallis Chamber of Commerce at the 67th Annual Celebrate Corvallis Awards on January 16 at the CH2MHill Alumni Center. The “Good Steward” award honors a local business that has made a significant contribution to improving the environmental health of Corvallis through exemplary achievement in business practices using natural, financial, and human resources in a responsible manner that meets existing needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
The gathering was sponsored by Coalition partner First Alternative Co-op. THANK YOU!
