A sustainable community is an inclusive and equitable community—one that honors and celebrates diversity and affirms community members for all aspects of their identity.
Our community vision: All people of Corvallis have a sense of belonging. They are treated justly, have a sense of connection, and are represented in the community.
PROJECTS & EVENTS
Equity Impact Assessment
One of the tools we’re using to evaluate our projects and activities is an Equity Impact Assessment. It’s a conversation starter to help broaden our thinking and awareness, and integrate equity into our work. We’re taking it to our action teams and helping them use it to assess their various projects.
We’re partnering with the Natural Areas Action Team to engage neighbors in planting trees in areas of Corvallis that are “tree deserts”. Our goal is to promote healthier neighborhoods through cleaner air and fewer heat islands.
