One of the ordinances requires anyone who wants to open a strip club must first be screened by police.
The second would require adult business to get a license and they could only be located at least 800 feet away from schools and churches.
Owners would need to complete a police interview to get a license.
Neighbors have mixed opinions.
"Keep it away from schools? Yes, definitely. And keep it clean," said a Yakima Voter.
"Laws in the books, follow them. Just don't want muggings and all that crap. But, hey, let good time charlie roll," a Yakima man said.
"They don't need to be here. They can go to Seattle," said a Yakima Voter.
Applications for strip clubs will open next month.
