Residents want 'donut hole' to be a town

Friday, October 5, 2012by  Jon Osterberg

It appears the 4,000 residents of an unincorporated “donut hole” surrounded by the city of Pasco will get a chance to vote on incorporating their own town, to be called Riverview.
     The Franklin County community literally is surrounded by Pasco city limits, and many who live there have rebuffed the city’s attempts to annex the rural area, citing Pasco’s more-stringent codes and propensity for higher-density development. A citizens committee submitted a 268-page petition Oct. 3 asking for a public vote on incorporating Riverview. Read the Tri-City Herald article.
