The Yakima City Council took action Tuesday to allow limited cruising along Yakima Avenue in the future. The council voted unanimously to direct staff to rework the current cruising ordinance that bans cruising along Yakima Avenue. The future ordinance will allow cruising on the second and third Saturdays in June, July, August and September from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Before the Tuesday vote council members talked to local car club officials about the cruise nights and requirements needed. The council took action after local car clubs met with the city earlier this year about the rules or the ordinance that banned cruising along Yakima Avenue.
