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.

Read the recent Walla Walla Union-Bulletin article by reporter Sheila Hagar about our ongoing study dedicated to improving food security in our region!

In addressing issues related to food insecurity, local experts present their knowledge each week to the volunteer study group. Examples of topics include identifying the barriers people face in obtaining adequate amounts of nutritious food; ensuring that households have the information and means to choose, store, and prepare food; and recommending ways to reduce food insecurity in the region. In addition, best practices for supporting food security are being examined as part of the study process.
