Willamalane's Future: Share Your Ideas for Our Community

Willamalane is seeking community feedback to update its Comprehensive Plan, and the district wants to hear from you! By taking a survey, attending a pop-up event, or submitting your idea, you'll contribute to a 20-year plan that will serve to meet our community's unique needs. Share your thoughts on what you want to see from Willamalane parks, recreation programs, facilities, community services, events, and more.

How to Participate


Willamalane will mail information about surveys to district residents in July and August. Some residents will receive a complete survey in the mail, and others will receive a postcard with a link to an online survey. Please fill the survey out so that we can include your feedback in the Comprehensive Plan!


Have questions about the Comprehensive Plan? Stop by an event, chat with our team, and share your feedback.
