The city of Corvallis will hold the second of its three community workshops on the Imagine Corvallis 2040 project from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at Linus Pauling Middle School, 1111 N.W. Cleveland Ave.

The workshops are designed to provide feedback for the city as it works to craft a new vision and action plan. Comments received will also be used to help inform actions on other City Council goals on housing, the budget and climate action.

Today’s workshop will feature two focus areas: how we learn and thrive (education, health and human services and personal growth) and how we create and celebrate (arts, culture and creativity).

The third workshop is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 19 at the Corvallis Boys & Girls Club.
