CHA envisions a vibrant, diverse, and improving community that welcomes all residents and values the historic character of the neighborhood.
The College Hill Neighborhood has a unique pride of place in the city of Pullman. Close proximity to both the Washington State University campus and downtown Pullman business district make it a highly desirable location to live in or visit. The built environment is characterized by tree-lined streets and historic architecture in many forms (from single-family residences to churches, commercial buildings, and stately Greek-community houses).
The vibrant population is comprised mainly of Washington State University-affiliated students, faculty, staff, and retirees. More densely-populated than other parts of Pullman, the College Hill neighborhood and its small, attractive commercial areas are co-host to most of the significant cultural events and night life in Pullman. The active pedestrian community is served by excellent infrastructure, including lighting, paths, parking and public transit.
All members of the College Hill community are good citizens and good neighbors, demonstrating mutual respect to everyone. Historic structures are treated with care and the neighborhood is clean and safe for all. (Vision Statement from the College Hill Neighborhood Plan, 2005).
