Possible alternative for the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center
RICHLAND, Wash;-- A new location jumps to the top of the list for the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center.
"We are vetting Columbia Park West as our number one alternative site to Columbia Point South," project manager Davin Diaz said.
The search is part of the required permitting process to look at alternative sites other than Columbia Point South. The 61-thousand square foot building will have everything ranging from ice age flood exhibitions to information about the Manhattan Project. The city of Richland supported the decision to put the center at Columbia Point South but Native American tribes urged more research into alternative areas.
Currently the city of Richland and Kennewick are working together to develop a master plan for the possible site at Columbia Park West.
