Changes could be coming to Spokane’s Master Bike Plan

The City wants to know what you think about some proposed changes to Spokane's Master Bike Plan.

Council Member Jon Snyder has been working with members of the community to add bicycle facilities to the Bike Plan. That includes already-completed facilities such as the Dwight Merkel Park trail loop and the Spokane International Airport bike lane loop and forthcoming projects on the Centennial and Fish Lake trails.

The amendments to the Master Bike Plan would affect text in Chapter 4 (the Transportation Chapter) of the City's Comprehensive Plan as well Map TR 2, the Planned Bikeway Network Map.

If the amendments are approved, City planners will discuss how to incorporate the proposed changes to the bikeway map into the ongoing efforts to redesign Spokane's bike map.

We want to hear from you about the proposed changes. The period for public input on the Bike Plan update runs through 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 23. Leave your comments below or send them in via email to Assistant Planner Nathan Gwinn at There will also be an open house on the bike plan amendment at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 17 in the Chase Gallery at City Hall (808 West Spokane Falls Boulevard). Come check out what's planned and tell us what you think.
