Welcome to Community Council

Thanks to over 400 community members who attended Community Council’s annual luncheon!  We were pleased to release the Education as a Path to Economic Growth study report at that event. Please visit the Current Study page to learn more.

We continue to work to engage the community in Community Conversations – a series of public workshops designed to develop regional priorities and action plan.  At the first set of workshops, held in May, residents shared their ideas for the future.  During the summer we will organize additional smaller workshops to hear even more ideas.  The second round of large community workshops will take place on September 19, 20, and 21, where ideas will be prioritized.  Your input is crucial, so please mark your calendar!  Please visit the Community Conversations page to learn more.

Please take the Community Treasures survey if you have not already done so.  Community treasures are the people, places, and things that make our region special.  Community treasures show our values and our strengths, and what makes us proud of where we are.  


About the Council

The council helps address community issues by bringing residents of the region together to study topics and implement recommended solutions.

Community Study Process

  1. The program committee identifies—and the board selects—a topic.
  2. The study committee studies the topic and gives recommendations.
  3. The implementation task force implements recommendations.
  4. The community council board of directors monitors the results.

The council encompasses the entire Walla Walla region, from Dayton to Burbank and Milton-Freewater to the Snake River.
