Yakima taking action on Downtown Master Plan

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima is taking action on the Downtown Master Plan. It's taking a closer look at the parking problems the plan could create.

City staff drafted two requests for bids. One for the design of a new downtown plaza. Another for an overall parking strategy to replace spots that could be lost from the plaza.

Local business owners would be invited to give feedback. Decisions should be done by the end of March.
