Yakima City Council Adopts Bicycle Plan

During its regular business meeting last night, Tuesday, March 6th the Yakima City Council adopted the Yakima Bicycle Master Plan.

The plan is intended to develop a bicycle network plan that, when implemented, will improve bicycle transportation throughout the City of Yakima.

The goals include promoting safe and accessible community and recreational opportunities between parks, schools, the Yakima Greenway, employment and commercial centers, as well as other points of interest in the City of Yakima.

The City’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee recommended approval of the plan during its meeting on January 10th, 2018.

The Bicycle Master Plan, or “Bike Yakima,” was first drafted in November 2015 and revised following adoption of the City of Yakima’s Comprehensive Plan 2040 update.
