Yakima Avenue

Yakima, Washington

HBB provided visioning and design expertise for streetscape improvements along ten blocks of Yakima Avenue within the heart of downtown. HBB presented three streetscape concepts to property owners, merchants, general public, and Yakima City Council, ultimately gaining wide citizen support. Fully integrated design features of the new streetscape include: street trees, hanging baskets, accent paving, site furnishings, planters, artistic railing, light fixtures, and banner poles. The accent paving colors echo the golden, autumnal hues of the surrounding hillsides and the plant palette is inspired by the native sagebrush habitat, desert flowers, and lush, green valleys It was awarded the Municipal Excellence Award for Economic Development by the Association for Washington Cities (AWC).
