Cruising is still banned along Yakima Avenue but the ban is expected to be dropped next month. Last month the Yakima City Council was set to vote on repealing the ordinance but held off so the council to discuss the matter with local car clubs. The issue is back on the September 3 Yakima City Council agenda.
The council decided to not to take action last month until the council could speak with area car club officials who are concerned about insurance and special event permit requirements the city has in place. But if the council does act at the next meeting the repeal won't happen until 30 days after the vote. So it looks like the city will be ready for cruising the avenue in 2020.
