Last Workshop to Discuss Yakima's Downtown Master Plan Scheduled

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- The third and final public workshop to discuss Yakima's Downtown Master Plan is coming up this Monday.

The workshops are designed to engage the public and get input on the planned renovations to the downtown area.

Sean Hawkins, Economic Development Manager for the City of Yakima, says the plan is to make the downtown area more friendly to walkers.

"The focus really would be on the pedestrians. We want to build the type of environment where pedestrians are more comfortable walking around downtown," Sean said. "Where there's more things to do, not only for tourists that may come here, but for the people that live here."

The master plan includes the creation of a Yakima Plaza as well as a Front Street Public Market and a Main Street Retail Plan as well.
