A friend who lives in North Corvallis asked me why he should care about Measure 2-121. He said he would vote for it because he has friends in South Corvallis but he doesn’t really see what it has to do with him.
This followed an earlier conversation about his worry about climate change and his wish that more people would consider biking instead of using cars. I noted to him that he just answered his own question. Measure 2-121 will create an urban renewal district that will provide, among other amenities, more affordable housing in South Corvallis and that in turn will allow for more people to live in Corvallis instead of commuting from outside of the city.
No matter where you live in Corvallis, Measure 2-121 will benefit you. More affordable housing means more tax dollars, a smaller carbon foot print as few people commute to work and a more diverse community.
Please join me in a "Yes" vote for Measure 2-121.
