There are many things that make Pullman a great place to live and one of those positives is our diversity.  We have residents from all over the world in our community bringing different perspectives and enhancing our cultural awareness.

Back in 2012, Mayor Glenn Johnson was approached by some WSU senior and graduate students in Architecture who sought his advice for a project over which teams of Architectural students could compete--a project that could possibility benefit the city.  Mayor Johnson said he would like to see a Welcome Park on Davis Way where the old Burgerville and Daily Grind buildings had been located.  He mentioned that he saw a sign in war torn Croatia that had the word “Welcome” in a variety of languages and would like to see something similar in Pullman.  With that as a start, three teams competed and came up with designs.  The winning team received a cash prize from the Mayor.

The city of Pullman, with additional donations from WSU International Programs, Schweitzer Engineering, the Chamber of Commerce, and others, hopes to construct a landscaped Welcome Wayside along NW Davis Way--the focus being a large multi-faceted sign saying “Welcome” in 60 different languages, 30 on each side of the structure. The design is complete, the languages have been verified, and we are waiting for a few more donations to come in before we go to bid in hopefully March or April. This Wayside, with multi-lingual welcome sign, has had a few setbacks (Including last year’s bid attempt in which we received only one bid which was considerably higher than expected), but we are anticipating the project’s realization this year.

If you would like more information on this project and/or would like to donate, please contact Mayor Glenn Johnson at 509-338-3316 or by email.

Avista gas line replacement in Pullman has been announced. The work is scheduled to begin in April and be completed in October.

Coinciding with the greening of the Palouse, the city of Pullman requests residents and organizations to submit their ideas and goals throughout the month of April to Pullman Mayor Glenn Johnson for City Council consideration.

In past years, goal setting began in January when Mayor Johnson kicked off the process. By shifting the process to later in the year, it is closer to the next budgeting cycle.  Adopted goals that will have a budget impact can be incorporated into the budget.

Goal suggestions should be received by the Mayor’s office no later than Monday, April 30. If you would like to submit your goal suggestions by mail, please address them to

Council Goals

325 SE Paradise Street
Pullman, WA 99163

If you would prefer to use email, please open this web form, with Council Goals as the subject line, or fax them to (509) 334-2751.

After receiving goal suggestions from residents, organizations and city government departments, the council and mayor hold a special meeting to review and refine them, as well as adding their own suggestions. On a later date, the council meets with department heads to go through the tentative goal list. The plan is to bring the final, refined list of goals before the City Council for formal adoption in May.

Coming soon -- electronic permitting. Details here!!
