Update on the Hanford Reach Center

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND, Wash. - The Richland Public Facilities District Board just wrapped up a meeting about the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center. Board members had concerns about raising enough money to follow through with plans for the entire center, even at its current reduced size. However, a planned announcement Tuesday morning from Hanford contractors Mission Support Alliance and Lockheed Martin has eased those concerns. The board expects the announcement to include between three and ten million dollars toward the Reach Center, and they anticipate it will spur further donations from other entities. The board also discussed cutting operating costs by up to 38% this year, and over 50% next year. Laying off two employees and moving temporary offices to reduce rent from $20,000 to $5,000 will contribute to that effort. Board members also talked about applying for two $500,000 grants from the state to cover landscaping costs.
