Benton County is joining a task force to help guide the redevelopment of Vista Field.
Commissioners last week selected Chairman Jim Beaver for the Vista Vision Task Force. The Port of Kennewick owns the 113-acre Vista Field near the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick.
A consultant is helping the port with a master plan for redeveloping Vista Field. The task force of community leaders will "offer advice, guidance and insight to staff and (port) commissioners so that future development can create a truly unique and special place for our region," Tim Arntzen, port executive director, wrote in a letter to the county.
The meetings will be open to the public.
Before Beaver became a county commissioner, he spent 18 years on the Kennewick City Council, including 12 years as the mayor.
