Annexation

The Kennewick City Council denies an annexation request into the city from a developer and a few Benton County residents.

In a 5 to 2 vote, the council turned down the request at last night's city council meeting.

The proposed housing development involves 21 acres near Gum Street and 15th Avenue, however, several neighboring property owners protested the proposed development.

Despite the city council denying the annexation request, the proposed housing development isn't necessarily halted.
