New Years weekend – To drop off contracts, pledges or donations after 5:00 p.m. on Friday December 29  or anytime  this Saturday or Sunday, they can drop off the contract or check at the utility payment box located right outside the main entrance to Yakima City Hall, 129 North 2nd Street.

Your investment in the Yakima Central Plaza is essential to making this community asset a reality. The City has committed to a $3 million total investment, and the community must raise nearly $9 million by December 31, 2017.

We are well on our way, and every gift counts: For an updated total on the donations and budget see this page
