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.
