Spokane Mayor David Condon delivered his annual State of the City address Friday morning at the Greater Spokane Incorporated monthly breakfast. The Mayor’s address focused on progress made during his three years in office and his vision for the City and the Spokane community moving forward.

“The past three years have seen their share of challenges, but we are working together as a city, as elected officials, as neighborhoods, as a community,” said Mayor Condon. “…We have reduced crime, refined how we respond to non-emergency medical calls, thought holistically about stormwater management and leveraged our dollars to achieve more and greater outcomes for citizen investments.”

The Mayor also highlighted geographic policing models, high City credit ratings, outreach to the homeless and vulnerable members of the community, and new investment in streets and Riverfront Park.

In his address, Mayor Condon said public safety, jobs and economic growth, budget, infrastructure, and quality of life would continue to guide the strategic direction of the City of Spokane.

The Mayor will deliver the State of the City address for the public throughout the month of March and in April at the following Spokane Public Libraries:

  • South Hill – March 18, 6 p.m.
  • Indian Trail – March 25, 6 p.m.
  • Hillyard – March 31, 6 p.m.
  • Shadle – April 1, 6 p.m.
