The 2017 Ellensburg Comprehensive Plan is the community’s vision for future growth and development. The Plan provides a path for our future and serves as a tool for policy change, and future decision making. 
The City used the Community Heart & Soul process for public participation during the comprehensive plan update. Community Heart & Soul strives to: fully involve the entire community; identify the shared interests and values of community members; and focus on long term success.

Housing Needs Assessment

To Support the City of Ellensburg's comprehensive plan update, BERK consulting conducted the Ellensburg Housing Needs Assessment, an analysis of current housing needs and market opportunities to address those needs.

Community development staff and the planning commission have presented information from the housing needs assessment to various community groups to raise awareness regarding the comprehensive plan update and housing issues in our community, see Ellensburg Housing Presentation.
