Meet and Greet at Track 29

Posted: Updated:

 

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Community members are once again fighting for Track 29 to stay up and running.

 

 

 

Today City Council Candidate Isidro Reynaga held a "Meet and Greet" with the public to discuss issues about the closing of Track 29 and other community issues.

 

Track 29 has been in Downtown Yakima since the late 1980's as a mall filled with restaurants and shops.  Now Russillo's Pizza and Gelato is the only business running.

 

The trustee of Track 29 filed paperwork with the city to create a parking lot where the railcars currently stand.

Reynaga said if there is enough support for Track 29, it could be a great treasure in the community.

 

"Track 29 would become a landmark, it would be beautiful if it could become historic, therefore we could keep it in place. It's a really nice place to come down here and walk around," said Reynaga

 

Reynaga is running for city council in the upcoming August election.  His campaign platform includes economic growth and the city's budget.

 

Now community members in support of keeping Track 29 want to make it a historical landmark in the city, but bankruptcies and other paperwork are making it hard to get to that point.
