Track 29 Tenants Start Online Petition to Save Boardwalk

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Several tenants in Yakima's Track 29 Mall have set up an online petition to save the area.

The business owners are worried the trustee in charge of the mall wants to tear down the boardwalk and put in a parking lot.

The mall has lost a number of businesses in the past few years, but those who are still there say it could recover under the right management.

More than 130 people have signed the petition so far. Organizers hope to get at least 200 signatures.

"We're trying to throw a pretty high number so we could go before, you know, Tony O'Rourke and say 'Look at this, Tony O'Rourke, 200 people signed this,'" said Track 29 Tenant Tony Sandoval.

We tried to get a comment from the mall's trustee, but were unable to reach him.

He has filed paperwork with the city to remove railway cars to create space for a parking lot.

However, the paperwork doesn't specify whether the plans are to remove all the cars, or just some of them.

If you want to sign the petition, you can find it here.
