Experience Chehalis Strategic Plan

The Experience Chehalis (formerly named the Chehalis Community Renaissance Team) 2020 – 2025 Strategic Plan establishes a path for making informed decisions to meet community building goals in Chehalis, Washington. The Strategic Plan identifies specific priorities, initiatives and the key action items needed to efficiently accomplish them.  This Strategic Plan identifies four priorities: rebranding the organization, enhancing programs and services, diversifying funding sources, and cultivating civic pride.

This Plan affirms Experience Chehalis’s mission and values, explores the current environment and community opportunities, and recommends strategies for success. Collaboration will be vital to the success of this plan. Initiatives were developed through a community visioning process and executing them will require a community effort. Experience Chehalis intends to play a lead role in implementation, fostering partnerships and soliciting help from the community along the way.

The original Renaissance Plan was approved by the Chehalis City Council in 2009, following a two-year development period with input from numerous community leaders and interested citizens. This multi-year, citywide master plan included projects and initiatives focused on community building, economic development, quality design, traffic & parking, and downtown development.
