On May 5, 2015 the Board of Yakima County Commissioners adopted YCC Title 19 Unified Land Development Code (ULDC) which integrates/consolidates official controls and procedural requirements for land development and division in unincorporated areas within County land jurisdiction. Through implementation of the new code, some unintended changes had been adopted. The recent amendments relate to the Land Use Table. Other fixes are to be expected in 2016.
