An aquatic center, North First Street and the downtown plaza are on the agenda for a Tuesday study session for the Yakima City Council.

City Manager Tony O’Rourke says the city has $13 million from the general fund that it can spend on capital improvement projects and the council will be talking about several options.

O’Rourke says some of the money could be spent revitalizing North First Street.

New roads, sidewalks physically really enhance that area. Continue to do the emphasis patrols to clean up the area and hopefully bring it back to its historical prosperity.

The city will also be talking about spending money on a new city aquatic center. The aquatic center could be in the area of Fisher Park golf course. And the city will also be talking about using some of the money for the proposed downtown plaza project.

The study session is set for 10 a.m. at Yakima City Hall.
