The YouCAN Corvallis team is happy to announce a major milestone accomplishment in the progress of the Corvallis Climate Recovery Ordinance!  At the end of the April 17th Corvallis City Council meeting, Mayor Traber and the Councilors agreed to send the ordinance draft to a work session in June.  The Gazette Times has updated their coverage of the initiative to reflect this progress:

The latest: Seven residents testified — and dozens more stood up to support them — on the ordinance at the April 17 council meeting. The advocates requested that councilors hold a work session on the ordinance and later consider voting on it a future council session. The council agreed to hold a work session, with Mayor Biff Traber indicating that the issue will be on the agenda for a meeting in June.”
