Yakima City Council to vote on land purchase for SOZO Complex and Aquatics Center
YAKIMA, Wash.- City Council is expected to make some more decisions on the YMCA Aquatics Center and the completion of the SOZO Sports Complex during their meeting Tuesday night to help bring the projects to completion.
The council is expected to vote on the purchase of 32 acres immediately adjacent to the SOZO Sports Complex.
Land adjacent to the SOZO Complex must operate as a public park and recreation property to meet the City's agreement to provide a replacement to the Washington Recreation Conservation Office (WRCO) for land being used to develop an aquatics facility on a portion of Chesterley Park.
Council is also expected to make a vote on additional funding for an East-West Corridor, with the city funding 21% of the project's total cost.
Council will also vote to approve a citywide LED streetlight upgrade in an attempt to reduce crime.
