CNI is committed to the long-term revitalization of the historic Pullman neighborhood.
While Pullman had suffered greatly from the loss of the steel and rail manufacturing industries that fueled its initial growth, CNI focused attention on the community’s assets: historic buildings; the availability of developable land; rail, air, road and water connections to both the Atlantic and the Pacific; and, of equal importance, an organized community that valued the past as a foundation for building toward the future.
CNI began its work in Pullman by listening. CNI undertook an extensive community planning process, attending more than 60 community meetings and hosting three planning workshops. Community members identified key goals: job creation, access to groceries and retail amenities, affordable housing, and safe recreational spaces.
