The Community Development Department Planning Division contracted with FCS Group to conduct a comprehensive fee analysis to determine the cost of service and set an appropriate fee schedule for land use development fees. On February 7, 2023, the Yakima City Council approved Resolution No. R-2023-024 to increase the land use development fees, effective March 1, 2023.

Any questions may be referred to the Planning Division at (509) 575-6183 or by e-mail at: ask.planning@yakimawa.gov.


Land use applications can be emailed to: ask.planning@yakimawa.gov. Once submitted, we will confirm receipt of the materials and guide you to our online permit center to pay the application fee. You may also mail your application (and include a check payable to the City of Yakima if you are not paying online) to: City of Yakima Planning Division, 129 N 2nd St, Yakima, WA 98901.

In an effort to maintain a quick response time, we encourage you to submit your questions and concerns via email to: ask.planning@yakimawa.gov. Emails are checked frequently.
