About City of Richland
The City of Richland is located at the confluence of the Columbia and Yakima Rivers in southeastern Washington in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. Along with its sister cities of Pasco, West Richland, and Kennewick, the metropolitan area (population approximately 250,000) is known as the Tri-Cities. Richland, located in Benton County, claims approximately 52,400 residents.
Originally incorporated as a small farming community, Richland now focuses on energy production, advanced research, environmental remediation, and technology. Recent development have been seen in the fields of agricultural research and production. The U.S. Department of Energy's Hanford site has dominated the region for 50 years in terms of size, employment, and expenditures. Hanford's mission has evolved from defense production to waste management and environmental restoration and as a result, one of the City's primary goals is to further diversify its economy and expand its commercial and business sectors.
As home to both the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and a branch campus of Washington State University (WSU), Richland has a highly educated and actively involved citizenry. The City and its c...itizens are proud of the community's high quality of life, outstanding health care providers and facilities, cultural and recreational amenities, and municipal services that consistently score very high in community surveys. Richland residents also enjoy a favorable cost of living and one of the lowest crime rates in the state.
