No Drive Thru For Coffee Shop in Downtown Yakima
No drive through for downtown Yakima. On Monday, the Yakima City Planning Department
rejected a request for a downtown drive through at 2 Street and Yakima
Avenue. An article in today’s Yakima Herald Republic says the developer wanted
to open a coffee shop (starbucks) in the area that would have a drive
through. But planners felt it just wasn’t safe. The developer could appeal
the ruling that could eventually end up in front of the Yakima City Council.
