Charting a direction for the future of Battle Ground

The City of Battle Ground and community volunteers are embarking on a visioning process – called Battle Ground Roadmap – to chart the City’s future. More than 1,000 area residents have already gotten involved!

The Roadmap will reveal our preferred destination and how we can get there. A shared vision for the community’s future and an action plan will point the way to guide City policy, set priorities and align resources.

Battle Ground Roadmap Navigators
National visioning expert Steven Ames leads the Navigators' June 27 orientation session.
Navigators work to develop the four "Future Directions" to test in the community survey.

We’re Pulling Over and Asking for Direction

The Navigators are looking into the future and asking community members to help chart Battle Ground’s future. Several distinct directions are possible.


Future Direction 1
“Town & Country”

Battle Ground will be an authentic and unique community supported by a diverse economy that offers a full range of in-town services and amenities serving north county, featuring a traditional downtown district with shops and cafes – all maintaining a commitment to Battle Ground’s rural, small town heritage and history.


Future Direction 2
“Family-Friendly Enclave”

Battle Ground will be the go-to place in the region, attracting young families, offering an assortment of affordable to executive housing, top-notch schools, superior parks and recreational amenities, gathering places, and multi-use trails providing activities for all ages.


Future Direction 3
“Gateway to Outdoor Adventure”

Battle Ground will be the launch pad for outdoor activities through interconnected recreational amenities highlighting the area’s natural resources and wetland features. Reflecting this identity, our community will have a growing recreation sector with adventure and agritourism, new businesses based on recreational products, and outdoor educational programs.


Future Direction 4
“Future Forward”

Battle Ground will be a job-generating innovation center with a robust and pace-setting construction industry and trades joined by an infusion of tech startups, cutting edge schools, “green” businesses and products, and a cool, artisanal factor added by new wines, brews, specialty products and local arts and entertainment “crafted in Battle Ground.”

Roadmap Focus Areas

Community leaders identified these five areas for Battle Ground Roadmap visioning.
