Ellensburg, Washington

In the summer of 2016, the City initiated the Community Heart & Soul process to understand what matters most to our community with the goal of identifying Heart & Soul statements that will guide our 20-year plan and help maintain Ellensburg’s quality of life.

What We Do

Developed and field-tested over a decade in partnership with small cities and towns, Community Heart & Soul is a proven model for engaging a community in shaping its future.
By following this four phase, step-by-step model, residents are able to bring the community together to chart a course forward that recognizes the unique character of the place and the emotional connection of the people who live there.
