Look – 700 jobs are on the way (sure, they’re in Umatilla, but lots of people live here and work there).

Congrats Tri-Cities!  We took over Yakima’s place as the 6th largest metropolitan area in the state. We grew tremendously since 2000, and especially in the ’07-’08 timeframe.

There has been an issue for a few years for some folks who live near the river in Pasco; Central Pre-Mix has a business near some houses.  In ’06 they thought they’d expand and incorporate an asphalt plant to the compound.  The homeowners said, “NIMBY”, and a court battle ensued.  Here’s the latest.

Also in Pasco, 14 new lots were approved in a subdivision called Tucker Estates.  The county commissioners ruled that a few of the lots will back up to Court St., as opposed to face on to one of the busiest streets in the city.

Set the alarm for a little earlier tomorrow.  Between the HWY. 395/240 project delays and the south Richland/West Richland road closures along Keene, plan for a lot of detours as you’re out and about tomorrow.

Have a great night!

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
