Burbank Washington Overview
In the 2010 census, the population of Burbank was pegged at slightly over 3,300 with a 50-50 ratio of males and females. Speaking of potential, it has a lot to offer visitors and future residents. Named for Luther Burbank, the city is located just east of Pasco and Kennewick, across the Snake and Columbia Rivers, respectively. Kennewick and Pasco are two of the Tri-Cities, and although Burbank is much smaller than either of the two cities, Burbank can be considered part of the Tri-Cities metropolitan area.
Burbank is perched at 365 feet above sea level and has a land area of 13.3 square miles. The Germans, English, Irish, Dutch, and Native Americans, as well as other races, have settled in Burbank and turned it into a sparkling jewel that shines, its image reflected by the waters of the Columbia, Snake, and Yakima rivers.
For people keen on buying property, consider this: the census data reports that the population density is “significantly below” the state average and the house age is the same. This means prospective homeowners can throw their renovation worries into the wind. With a youthful population, you’ll get youthful structures that won’t drain your renovating and decorating budgets. The majority of residents own their homes in Burbank, so the renting percentage is also below the state average.
A Great Community to Buy Into
The presence of business and industry in Burbank will not disrupt the tranquility of home life, and its proximity to competent medical centers – Lourdes Medical Center, Kennewick General Hospital, and Kadlec Medical Center – makes the city very well equipped to deal with the unforeseen. The manufacturing industry is responsible for 14.5% of commercial activity, 13.4% is taken up by transport and warehousing, 13.1% by educational, health, and social services, 11.9% by construction, and 11.1% by the professional, scientific, and management sectors.
Burbank’s nearest cities include Finley (4.1 miles, as the "crow flies," 13 miles by drive), Pasco (8 miles), and Highland (8.2 miles). Other cities of proximity are Wallula, Kennewick, West Pasco, Richland, and Touchet.
Remember what Lyndon B. Johnson once said about the American city? “The American city should be a collection of communities where every member has a right to belong. It should be a place where every man feels safe on his streets and in the house of his friends…This is what man sought at the dawn of civilization. It is what we seek today.”
Sound Real Estate Purchase
We believe that Burbank has fulfilled such expectations, and it will continue to seek ways to be much deserving of those ideals. When you visit Burbank, talk to the locals. They’ll tell you why they chose Burbank and why they’ve decided to raise their children here. Colleges and universities dot the Burbank landscape – sufficient faculties and resources catering to the inquisitive. In the name of commuting convenience, three airports service the population with three others in neighboring cities.
