Selling some Hanford land can attract new business Editorial Tri-City Herald (WA) January 26, 2011For years, the long-range vision for Hanford has been to clean it up and put it to good use.
As early as 1959, the Herald published an editorial that said, in part, "The fact that there is optimism for the future is encouraging. While there won't be any new industrial plans at Hanford next week, there is the very distinct possibility that there will be one sometime in the future."
The crux of that editorial was that down the road, all that radioactive waste might be useful. Maybe people would use it to preserve food or find some other functions.
Good ideas, but not exactly the type of industry we see in Hanford's future these days. And yet, the editorial's underlying premise remains sound 62 years after it was written.
As the community again looks to develop "new industrial plans at Hanford," exploiting the site's existing assets is the best bet.
