Yakima Downtown Master Plan designs coming soon

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima leaders are back from visiting other cities to get ideas for the Downtown Master Plan. Trips included visits to Walla Walla, Bend, Medford and Portland.

Yakima officials say Medford, Oregon's downtown plaza could potentially be a model for Yakima.

A team is still working on designing three different plans. A resident KIMA spoke to says she wants to see a busier downtown all year-round.

"It would be great because just on a Sunday, that's the only day that something's available and when the grandkids come visit, we'd like to be able to do it every day," said Joann Carow.

The different designs should be ready for everyone to see the end of July.
