Downtown Kennewick input sought

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA - The City and Historic Downtown Kennewick Partnership are asking the public to take a short survey about downtown by this Sunday, February 26. A link to the online survey is located at or directly at

The input collected on shopping and eating preferences, events, and what attracts people to the historic downtown and waterfront district will be used in business recruitment, grant requests and shared with business owners, said Emily Estes-Cross, the city’s Economic Development Manager. The six question survey is a follow-up to a larger survey conducted in July 2015, and the data will be analyzed for trends and changes in the marketplace.

“Public input helps develop a strong case for restaurants and retailers that are considering locating a business downtown, and it’s valuable for established companies to see input from potential customers,” Estes-Cross said. The survey data will also be helpful in seeking funding for various revitalization projects, since grant applications often require evidence of public support, she explained.
