Why Should We Plan for Growth?
Kennewick's population is expected to grow by 33,754 new residents by 2037, an increase of about 43% over 2015.

Planning for this growth will:

  • Allow the community to influence issues they care about

  • Allow the community to meet future challenges, such as economic development, traffic, or housing affordability.

  • Help ensure preservation of community values, such as sustainability, good design, or health
