Yakima City Council Looking For Master Plan Committee

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA-- The Yakima City Council is now looking to form a committee to finalize the conceptual design for the Downtown Yakima Master Plan.

After some division from the public on what should be included in the plan, the city said they want to bring a group of council members, business owners and citizens together to finalize what they think is the most beneficial to the area.

The city also said even though there are different opinions about what should be added, everyone just wants the best for Yakima.

"At the end of the day, I think everyone wants us to move forward.  They know we can be better and if we pull together and get everyone working on both sides, I think we'll be able to move this project forward and keep the momentum going we have in downtown," said Economic Development Manager, Sean Hawkins.

Hawkins also said the committee's first order of business is to hit the road and see what other cities in the state have done to revitalize their downtown areas.

The city hopes to appoint the committee later this month.
