We are overjoyed to report that, on the July 17th meeting of the Corvallis City Council, the Council collectively agreed to go forward with the creation of a Climate Advisory Board. Ten community members testified in favor of a CAB, citing the recommendation by the Climate Action Task Force and the work of the YouCAN Corvallis team.
