I'm asking the city council to not change the name of Yakima Valley Highway in Sunnyside. It doesn't need changing.
Will it make a difference in the economy, change the community as a whole? If not, then don't spend money on something that doesn't need fixing.
Wine Country Road fits Prosser, not Sunnyside, just like Sunnyview fits Sunnyside and Grandview.
I know changes are good, but I don't see the good in changing the name of this road. Many people who have traveled on this road know it as Yakima Valley Highway.
There have been a lot of changes in our town...some good but some not so good. Some have made a positive impact and some a negative impact. I, for one, would ask that the city council rethink the idea of changing the name of this road.
