A Part of Second Ave to be Permanently Closed

kndo

YAKIMA, Wash.– The Yakima City Council gave their final stamp of approval to close a part of Second Avenue.

Soon, Second Avenue between West Lincoln Avenue and West D Street will close permanently.

The city is selling the street to Hops Extract Corporation of America for 28-thousand dollars.

Hops Extract wanted to buy the area and fence it off to bring them in line with a federal food safety act.

Their attorney told the council last month that if their application was denied, they might leave Yakima.

A number of businesses that have entrances on the street resisted the closure, saying it would be a major negative impact to their business.

The Yakima Hearing Examiner agreed saying it would not grant enough benefits to offset the cost to businesses to close the street.

However, the council decided to override those recommendations last month.

The vote last night finalizes the terms of the deal including the 28-thousand dollar price of the property and an easement of public utilities.
