What should the future of Spokane's transportation and utility infrastructure look like? That's the question the City of Spokane committed to answering this year.

The City has embarked on what's called the “Link Spokane” planning process to create a 20-year vision for transportation and utility needs within the City, and a number of workshops are planned the first week of February to get you involved in the process.

These meetings will focus on transportation needs, asking people to help define the types of streets that meet their needs for driving, biking, walking, accessing transit, and more.

Here are the opportunities:

  • Bicycle Transportation System Planning Workshop – Monday, Feb. 3, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Council Briefing Room, lower level of Spokane City Hall, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd.
  • Drop-by Open Houses
    • Tuesday, Feb. 4, NorthTown Mall, Division Street Entrance, Level 1 from 4 to 6:30 p.m.
    • Wednesday, Feb. 5, Southside Christian Church, 2934 E 27th Avenue from noon to 6:30 p.m.
    • Friday, Feb. 7, River Park Square, Street Level from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
  • Council Connection – Watch and call in to “Council Connection” hosted by Council Member Mike Fagan on City Cable 5, the City's government access cable station, Thursday, Feb. 6, from 6 to 7 p.m.
