City of Yakima Considering Plan with Cowiche Canyon Conservancy

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Yakima City Council will consider a partnership with the Cowiche Canyon Conservancy at its meeting tomorrow night.

The city is looking for ways to meet its citizen's wants and needs, and this agreement could help them in that goal.

The city is considering an agreement with the Conservancy to develop more trails for hiking.

The city is pursuing this agreement due to the results of its citizen survey a few months ago.

Many of the people surveyed said they wanted to have more places to walk and hike in our area.

The new agreement would see the city and Conservancy expand the number of hiking trails around our area, with the goal of creating a connected network.

They would focus on maintaining and upgrading existing trails.

Both parties would also promote the area through educational events and advertising.

The council will vote on it at their next meeting.

That's happening tomorrow night at six in Yakima City Hall.
