The Ellensburg Comprehensive Plan is the community’s vision for future growth and development. Imagine Ellensburg is an update to the current Comprehensive Plan that will provide a path for our future and serve as a tool for policy change, funding and implementation of projects, and public-private partnerships.
Imagine Ellensburg uses the Community Heart & Soul process for public participation which strives to: fully involve the entire community; identify the shared interests and values of community members; and focus on long term success.
Draft Chapters of Imagine Ellensburg
For the past year City staff has been engaging the community and working with existing city commissions to gain input and ideas on the Comprehensive Plan update. Based on this input we are now working on draft chapters of our Comprehensive Plan. As drafts are developed they will be available here and on our online engagement tool, Eburg Talks for review and public comment.

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.
