The Economic Development program for the City of West Richland is a component of the Community Development Department.

Program Goal

The program goal is to improve the city’s economic vitaliopportunity-communityty and competitiveness by investing our time and resources wisely as we implement council’s Economic Development Plan and strategic focus areas. We seek to leverage limited resources through partnerships, grants, and investments from public and private entities; through building solid and trusting relationships and a “customer friendly” environment with commercial and industrial developers; and through public involvement and two-way communications.

The Economic Development Plan

The economic development program at the city includes the 2010 adoption of the Economic Development Strategic Plan. This plan outlines several anchor concepts and strategies for improving the city’s economic base. The plan was paid for by a grant from State of Washington’s Department of Commerce.

A major focus includes redevelopment of the Van Giesen corridor, and continuing development in the wine industry.
