Ellensburg is projected to grow by 11,757 people over the next 20 years. As the City updates the Ellensburg Comprehensive Plan (20-year plan for future growth and development) we need to hear from our community about how and where we should grow and help us think about where people will be living and working. A recent Ellensburg Housing Needs Assessment indicates that we need different types of housing for a range of household sizes and income levels. Input from this community open house as well as an online opportunity to share your input on future land use in Ellensburg will be incorporated into the Comprehensive Plan update, let your voice be heard and help us to shape our future.
