New Subdivision Could Go Up at 10th and Morain in Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - There used to be a lot of cherry orchards in Kennewick. Now, one of the last ones left could be the next subdivision to go up. 

It's at W. 10th Avenue and S. Morain Street. The whole area was orchards at one time but now the owners of the last one in the area have asked the city to rezone that property. It was rezoned and is now deemed 'low density residential.' The owners are hoping to sell the just over 10 acres of land.

An applicant out of Vancouver, Washington is proposing to divide the land into 41 single family lots. Preliminary studies on the project have already been done and those findings will be presented at Monday's Kennewick City Council meeting.

"Everything from the scope of the development and traffic mitigation issues and all of those things to consider that development and that location," said Evelyn Lusignan with the City of Kennewick.

At Monday's meeting the findings will be brought before the hearing examiner. He will review the work and also accept public comment. By the end of June it will be decided whether the new subdivision will go in.
