Welcome to the Community Council
The council helps address community issues by bringing residents of the region together to study topics and implement recommended solutions.
Community Study Process
- The program committee identifies—and the board selects—a topic.
- The study committee studies the topic and gives recommendations.
- The implementation task force implements recommendations.
- 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.
