We are still a very young organization, just 2½ years old! The Coalition was launched in 2007 by the local chapter of the Oregon Natural Step Network. Last year, we had two major initiatives: The Coalition partnered with the Energy Trust of Oregon to sponsor the Corvallis Energy Challenge. The Coalition led a community-wide public process that revolved around 3 town hall meetings attended by hundreds of people. That public process resulted in a Sustainability Action Plan for the Corvallis community. (hold up plan) The Action Plan provides a framework in 12 topic areas for our partners and for the action teams that have been established this year...
