Community to be asked about preferred projects

PASCO -- The Tri-Cities Regional Public Facilities District is hoping to find out exactly what sort of projects area residents would like to see done.

The district has decided to hire Leisure Vision of Kansas to complete a community-based survey to ask what projects area citizens would prefer.

The board has said the survey will help prioritize projects.

Pasco Mayor Matt Watkins, the district's president, said, "We want the best information possible to guide us in preparing a proposal worthy of consideration by the voters of the Tri-Cities."

Projects that citizens will be asked to chose from are a regional aquatics facility, expansion of the Three Rivers Convention center, financial support for the Reach Interpretive Center and a performing arts center.

A random sample of Richland, Kennewick and Pasco residents will be asked to complete the survey.

The district estimates the survey will cost around $18,000.
