What We Do

What We Do

The Downtown Association of Yakima was formed in 2015 and is a certified member of  Washington Main Street Program and is a National Affiliate of Main Street America.

The Downtown Association of Yakima is a non-profit dedicated to the revitalization of the downtown community. We achieve this through a multi-pronged approach that focuses on marketing and events, supportive programs, and acting as a resource for the downtown community. Our model is based on the 4 Point Main Street Approach – the 4 Points or Pillars being Economic Vitality, Design, Promotions, and Outreach. If all 4 of these pillars are achieved, then revitalization occurs.

Programming includes: Events (full listing on Events page), Façade Improvement Grant Program, Maintenance and Beautification, Flower Program, Farmers Market, Monthly Breakfast Meetings, Facebook and Instagram pages, website, e-newsletter, and CPTED Training.

Mission Statement
