Rapid City Plaza Captures Casper’s Interest – Yakima, Are You Listening? — Dave’s Diary

Next Monday evening Catherine Gustafson will be back to town with greater detail on the proposed plaza plan for downtown Yakima.  You are invited to check it out starting at 6:30 at the Seasons Performance Hall.

It looks like we have addressed the day to day parking concerns and we are working on the special event parking as well.

Keep in mind the main purpose for the plaza is economic revitalization and while there are no 100% guarantees there is plenty of evidence that a well designed plaza can help spur the economy.  The latest example of that comes from an article in a Casper, Wyoming newspaper.

Casper wants what Yakima wants and Casper has seen it already at work in Rapid City, South Dakota.  Their success can be Casper’s and it can be Yakima’s too.

Utility Tax Funds Police and More? — Dave’s Diary

Strange night last night at city hall.  In addition to the council picking a Plaza plan to move forward the council also had a “conversation” and a vote about the city utility tax.  We definitely don’t all agree on this one.
