Hanford plan includes rec opportunities

KENNEWICK -- Officials in the Tri-Cities have unveiled a draft plan for recreational opportunities that could be opened up by environmental cleanup of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.
The Tri-City Herald reported that the Department of Energy plans to complete most Hanford cleanup along the Columbia River by the end of 2015.
The agency's plans have called for some Hanford land to be used for industrial development, but most to be set aside for preservation of desert shrub steppe habitat.
The Tri-City Development Council hired MacKay Sposito in January to develop a community proposal for using Hanford land for outdoor recreation.
The Hanford site made plutonium for nuclear weapons during World War II and the Cold War. But the future of much of the site could include hiking, wildlife viewing and boating.
