How do I name my road?
In accordance to Yakima County Ordinance 4-2007, private driveways accessing 5 or more residenced properties, new or existing developments with public/private access roads, or existing named roads may be petitioned for a new road name. The applicant(s) must fill out the Road Name Request Form.

Renaming an existing named road (public or private) must be heard before the Board of County Commissioners in a public hearing. Unnamed road applications will be reviewed by the County Address Coordinator and issued the applicant's highest submitted requested name that meets all County road naming criteria.
