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.
