KENNEWICK, WA - The Kennewick Irrigation District said that The Board of Directors passed a resolution on January 6th, saying they are selling the downtown administrative building and parking lot .

KID says their Administrative Office has been in downtown Kennewick for decades, and in 2002 KID renovated a key downtown building to help anchor the City of Kennewick's revitalization efforts there. Although it has worked well for some aspects of business, it is out of the district and remote from half of the district's employees. It is not large enough or in the right location to fit both halves of the business. 


They say that it makes better sense to create one unified space to be shared by all of KID's 57 employees at the KID-owned Ely Street property. A new building located there will provide a more central location from which to serve our customers. Beyond the functional benefits of consolidation, they believe this move will be the most effective use of our operating budget in the long term. 

The Board of Directors and senior management believe, "this decision will provide improvements now and anticipates future needs of our growing customer base. The Ely Street location will be within the KID boundaries, in the heart of our customer base and the center of our district."
