Project Downtown is a multi-year City-led effort to reshape Downtown Pullman’s streets and public spaces to build community, experiences, and economy. Project Downtown includes projects identified in the 2020 Downtown Master Plan that was recently adopted by the City Council.
Public engagement will be critical to the success of the project. Opportunities for public input will occur continuously from the initial phase through construction of individual downtown projects.
The Pullman Project Downtown website is the online hub to provide two-way communication with the community and document the design and implementation process.

Concept Design & Phasing
Development of concept plans for the project will be informed by both the Downtown Master Plan and the engagement activities.
During this phase, community will have opportunities to provide feedback on draft concept plans and refinement through public meeting or online open house.
Implementation & Construction
Public engagement continues to be important during the implementation and construction management phase of the project(s). Activities may include a pre-construction meeting with adjacent business, property owners, and residents in the construction zone, regular construction updates on the project website, and open lines of communication to address any issues with construction management and access to businesses and residences.
Public Space Management
2023 - Ongoing
After a project is complete and the ribbon cutting has occurred there is still a need to maintain public engagement and active management of public space.
Activities may include partnerships with the Downtown Pullman Association for public space management and activation, volunteer recruitment, event management and promotions, and open communication with businesses and residents Downtown.
