Columbia Drive Urban Revitalization Area
Located adjacent to the Columbia River and Duffy's Pond in the City of Kennewick's historic downtown.Learn More
Located in the heart of the Mid-Columbia river region, Clover Island offers opportunities for mixed use development with resplendent river vistas, recreational pathways, riparian wildlife viewing, and easy access to historic downtown Kennewick. A conceptual plan has been presented for a future mixed-use development for the southwestern area of the island between the port of Kennewick offices and the Clover Island Yacht Club. The conceptual plan calls for reshaping the pedestrian sidewalks to eliminate the current 'arrow straight' sightline down the middle of the island, and to create inviting spaces and outdoor courtyards amid mixed-use retail and commercial buildings.Learn More

Vista Field Airport
Vista Field represents 113 acres in the heart of the Tri-Cities. The former airfield closed to all aviation activity on December 31, 2013.
Closing the airport eliminates a $390,000 annual tax subsidy; and provides a unique opportunity to create a regional destination with shopping, entertainment, residential and flex industrial areas. A consultant study for that area, prepared with significant community input, proposed a chain of new public open spaces, parks, and plazas; water features and civic improvements; and possibly even a "canal walk" similar to those in Bricktown, Oklahoma or San Antonio, Texas. Redevelopment would be implemented in phases and designed for connectivity with other neighborhoods--especially the Entertainment District and the Columbia Center Shopping area.
