Welcome to 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

  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.

Please join Community Council on Wednesday, June 10th, 2015 from noon to 1:15 pm at the Marcus Whitman Hotel, to celebrate the release of the Enhancing Outdoor Recreation Opportunities Study Report!  Tickets are $30/person and must be purchased in advance.  To purchase tickets, please email director@wwcommunitycouncil or call 509-540-6720.

The issue that community members examined was: how can we promote, enhance, and develop outdoor recreational opportunities and accessibility to improve the region’s quality of life and economic vitality? 

“Spending time outdoors has been demonstrated to have positive effects on community members’ physical and mental health while simultaneously instilling in them a sense of responsibility to the environment”
