On Monday, Sept. 16, at 6 p.m., the Corvallis City Council is scheduled to vote on the first ever "annexation agreement" between the city and Caldwell Farms. This agreement will pave the way for the council to approve annexation of 16.45 acres of farmland and rezone the land to RS-12 or medium–high density housing.

If council votes yes on this agreement, the city is committing to use eminent domain to obtain easement for 350 feet of sewer line across neighboring county private property.

It would allow up to 320 living units on the parcel.

It would increase traffic on a dangerous stretch of West Hills Road and add traffic to the roundabout at 53rd Street.

It would impact impact wetland acreage that is part of the Dunawi Creek drainage.

While this step in the process is not a public hearing, the meeting is open to the public and we can show community support for a "No" vote on this annexation. Please join us!
