Spokane’s neighborhoods are beginning to work on ideas to apply for traffic calming funds through the City of Spokane. The Traffic Calming program allows neighborhoods to apply for safety projects to address speeding vehicles, excessive vehicle speeds and safety for non-motorized road users.

The Traffic Calming Program is entering into its fifth year of accepting applications from the neighborhood councils. The program has successfully funded nearly 57 total projects ranging from traffic circles and bump-outs to crosswalks and sidewalks. The funds that support the program come from the Photo Red Light violator infractions.

To help neighborhoods fill out applications, three Traffic Calming Workshops will be held in the following City Council Districts:

  • District 1: January 28th, 6-7:30 p.m., Northeast Community Center (4001 N. Cook)
  • District 2: January 29th, 6-7:30 p.m., Wilson Elementary Library (911 W. 25th Ave.)
  • District 3: January 21st, 6-7:30 p.m., West Central Community Center (1603 N. Belt)
