On July 25th we were presented with the Governor’s Smart Communities Award along with the Port of Kennewick, Benton County, WA Government, and Columbia Basin College for our amazing revitalization partnership in the Columbia Drive Urban Revitalization Area project.
Economic Development and job creation remains a top priority for the City Council. We have listened and have heard how we need new destinations for people of all ages to gather and nothing is more special than our waterfront. This award also recognized the partnership we have with you in our community and implementing your vision. We are so appreciative of all of our community partners who have attended outreach events and continue to provide support.
River shore revitalization will also stimulate additional investment for new and expanding companies in the area and will bring additional revitalization to our Historic Downtown.
