A Transportation Access Plan for Pullman National Monument

The Pullman National Monument is a unique addition to the many attractions that draw people to the region every year. With the recent designation as a national monument, tourism visits are expected to increase substantially over the coming years. To capitalize on this momentum and ensure a transportation system that supports the needs of the local residents as well as visitors and tourists, the National Parks Conservation Association requested assistance to develop a transportation access plan for the area.  

With support from CMAP's Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program, the Pullman Transportation Plan seeks to improve access to the Pullman historic district by various modes for both visitors and residents. The first phase of the planning process involved an examination of previous planning efforts and an analysis of existing conditions. The second phase will focus on development of recommendations and outreach to community stakeholders, and the third phase will include the creation of a plan with short-, mid- and long-term strategies for the National Monument and surrounding neighborhoods.

For more information on the plan, and to contribute ideas or suggestions while the project is on-going, visit the external project page.

Public Engagement

Much of the public engagement has already taken place. An open house, as well as community meetings through Alderman Beale's office are planned for mid-November through early December. More details will be posted here as they become available.
