Pasco has become one of
Washington's fastest growing cities

Our residents–now majority Hispanic–are much younger than our 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?

To answer that question, Somos Pasco is creating a long-range community-driven conversation to continue to build a community-driven vision for Pasco and its economy. We're looking to capitalize on our most promising economic opportunities and community-wide priorities in answering:

  1. How can we continue to improve education and career skills, wages and household incomes in the Pasco area?
  2. What does Pasco need in order to enhance quality of life and make sure employers and employees want to stay here?
  3. What industries can we rely on for job growth in the next decades?
  4. What investments are needed to support critical economic sectors?
