Welcome to community development. We are here to help you find the information you need. The forms and information on this page will be your guide as you plan and carry out development projects in Tenino city limits. Please let us know how we can further help you be successful.

Development Opportunities

If you are an entrepreneur looking to start your own business, the proprietor of an established business in search of a place to build your home office, or a light industry that is in close proximity to the I-5 corridor, give Tenino a look. With the availability of sewer undeveloped commercial lots, and vacant storefronts in Tenino's downtown core, now is a great time to invest in Tenino. Tenino's population is growing, and there are many opportunities available to you.
