By the end of 2019, the Planning Department will have TWO office locations (Kennewick & Prosser) to serve you better!

We will be adding a new location within the Public Services Building at 102206 Wiser Parkway in Kennewick AND we will be moving our current Prosser office into the Benton County Courthouse at 620 Market Street in Prosser. 

We will continue to provide excellent customer service in Prosser and add a new location to better serve the entire county. We do not have dates yet for these moves, but will continue to update the public as we get closer to the move. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
