Pasco has become one of Washington’s fastest growing cities.
Its residents – now majority Hispanic – are much younger than in peer cities, and most are employed. Leading sectors of the today’s economy are agriculture, manufacturing, transportation and warehousing.
But what’s next for Pasco’s economy?
To answer that question, Somos Pasco will create a long-range vision and action plan for Pasco and its economy, in alignment with the most promising economic opportunities and community-wide priorities:
- The industries to rely on for job growth in the next decades
- Investments to support those sectors
- Strategies to improve educational attainment, wages and household incomes in the Pasco area
- The top amenities to enhance quality of life and make sure employers and their employees want to stay here
Somos Pasco is a collaboration of the Port of Pasco, City of Pasco and Franklin County along with Pasco School District, Columbia Basin College and other Tri-Cities community organizations and businesses. Together, these partners are seeking a shared vision that moves Pasco ahead.
