Plans to develop 8,000 ares of West Richland land were unveiled this week. The master-planned community will be called Lewis and Clark Ranch. Okay, I realize that it is the job of developers to develop, and lay out plans and streets and decide what might go best where, but come on…Lewis and Clark Ranch? What a boring name. It’s like West Richland – bor-ing! Benton City, bor-ing! Kennewick is a cool name. Seattle is a cool name. Wenatchee, cool name. Kahlotus, cool name, bor-ing town.
But, the plans sound really exciting. I wonder if my beloved West Richland will keep it’s small-town feeling when all of this moves in?
