The three ports in the Tri-Cities area reported on the projects they have undertaken to help boost the economy of the Tri-City area recently.
Officials from the Port of Kennewick, Port of Pasco, and the Port of Benton, who comprise the Tri-Ports, spoke to about 200 individuals about their parts in promotion of economic development and adding to the growing job market in the area.
Discussion about the revamping of the Clover Island area, plus improvements at the Richland Manufacturing Mall, the Prosser Food and Wine Park, and the Benton City Industrial Park were also covered. There will be efforts to update the Benton City area as well, by the Port of Benton and with that, the hope that other businesses will fall in line to spruce up their appearances and keep the efforts flowing.
The Port of Pasco has several projects underway, including the current construction of a potato processing plant at the Pasco industrial park, as well as Parsons expanding its footprint in the Big Pasco center, and the port’s Riverfront Business Park project.
