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
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
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.”
