YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - Yakima city planners have recommended against building a proposed Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency office in an industrial park.

Adjacent businesses and nearby homeowners object to the extra traffic as well as a temporary jail.

A public hearing on the project is set for Thursday at City Hall in Yakima.

Plans for a new Immigration and Customs Enforcement office at Union Gap fell through.
