Economic Development

Pullman enjoys a young, modern vibe generated by students, faculty and families who come for Washington’s land grant University, Schweitzer Engineering Labs, METER Group and other growing firms. It is the most ethnically and culturally diverse city in the region. Yet, Pullman cherishes its heritage and a less hectic pace of life.

Residents and visitors alike appreciate the small feel of the town and idyllic scenery, visible from almost any location. Business people appreciate the inter-connectedness of the community and the ability to make long-lasting impacts on the area.

Pullman looks to increase economic opportunity, diversity and increased social and cultural amenities as it grows while safeguarding the quality of life attributes so appreciated by businesses and residents alike: a highly educated workforce, high quality schools, safety, a City that is easy to navigate, and with plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities.
