The Spokane City/County Historic Preservation Office is making progress on nominating the Browne’s Addition Neighborhood to the Spokane Register of Historic Places. Listing of the Browne’s Addition Historic District on the local register would help protect the historic nature of the neighborhood while providing incentives for property owners. Part of the nomination process is to create design standards that will serve as the framework for making decisions about demolition, new construction, and alterations to building exteriors within the district.

You can learn more about the Browne’s Addition project on the Spokane Historic Preservation Office website:

The Historic Preservation Office and the Browne’s Addition Neighborhood Council have also organized a series of workshops to provide additional information, gather community input, and answer questions relating to the design standards. The workshops are listed below:

Thursday, October 18th, 6:30-8:00, Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture, Gilkey Room

Wednesday, November 7th, 6:30-8:00, location to be determined
