Building Heights and Shading - Riverfront Park

Following a request by members of the public and local landowners, the City is studying the current provision in the Spokane Municipal Code pertaining to building heights on the south side of Spokane Falls Boulevard and their effect on shadows in Riverfront Park.  The Plan Commission has formed a working group, to be led by Todd Beyreuther of the Plan Commission, which will study the issue and develop recommendations for how the City and local developers can address shading on the park while avoiding impediments to development.

The public is encouraged to comment on this project.  To this end, information and related materials have been made available on the City’s project website. Any new information or materials will be posted there as they become available.  Also listed on that website are the members of the working group and information on upcoming meetings.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Tirrell Black at or by phone at 509.625.6300.
