Vision Statement

CHA envisions a vibrant, diverse, and improving community that welcomes all and values the neighborhood's historic character. The following qualities represent our vision for public life on College Hill:

College Hill has a unique pride of place. Proximity to Washington State University's flagship campus and Pullman's downtown business district makes College Hill a highly desirable location to live in and visit. The built environment is characterized by clean, tree-lined streets and historic architecture in many forms from single-family residences to churches, commercial and public buildings, and stately WSU Greek-community houses.

College Hill is walkable. The active pedestrian community is served by excellent infrastructure, including lighting, paths, and public transit. Small commercial areas scattered within and near the neighborhood allow College Hill residents to perform daily errands and enjoy a night out without use of a car.

Green and open spaces balance the density of College Hill's built environment. The economic, health, and environmental benefits of the neighborhoods green areas are acknowledged and prioritized; the urban forest and tree canopy are protected and well maintained.

Residents and visitors experience College Hill as a richly diverse neighborhood community that is safe and welcoming for all.
