The City of Yelm can’t change its policies if it doesn’t know how its people feel.  You can help improve the relationship between the City and the businesses that call Yelm home. Improve your own bottom line along the way! 


Our Mission

The YBA’s mission is to preserve, promote, and enhance Yelm’s locally-owned businesses by acting as an advocate to local government, by improving Yelm’s aesthetic appeal, and by encouraging citizen and business involvement in the community.
