Hermiston has a lot to look forward to in 2017.

Many of the biggest local stories over the last year were forward-looking ones, covering the decisions city and business leaders made to set up major projects that will bear fruit in 2017.

The first development of the new year will be Hermiston’s new public bus system, known as the HART (short for Hermiston Area Regional Transit).
