Pullman 2040 Visioning Timeline
August – September: Pullman 2040 Formation Meetings
Individuals with a key interest in the vision and direction of our community and/or represented an entity which influences the direction of the Pullman community attended one of two Pullman 2040 formation meetings. There was sufficient desire to initiate the Pullman 2040 visioning process so a steering committee was formed.
September – January: Steering Committee Meetings
The mission statement was developed:
Pullman 2040 is a process which engages all community members to develop a collective vision for the Pullman community and the strategies to accomplish that vision.
The steering committee reviewed the methods other communities have used to set visions, best practices, and developed an inclusive process designed to engage all community members.
January – March: Community Input
During these three months, community input on Pullman’s future will be gathered through community meetings, meetings with community organizations, web surveys, and interviews.
