The City of Spokane invites citizens to try out a beta version of a Development Factors map application to improve predictions as the community evolves. The map app displays information about where new building activity might be likely near shopping destinations and other popular locations.
The mapping tool can help residents of all ages respond to changing housing needs and options in desired places within their own neighborhood. Creating more housing on vacant lots throughout the city promises to increase housing availability in Spokane and help keep housing costs and public and private expenses in check.
This tool could also help people anticipate locations of potential development in a neighborhood or property in areas designated for economic incentives. Please tell us how we can improve this tool by following the instructions below.
This map is a work in progress following recommendations from the City’s Infill Development Steering Committee and Mayor’s Housing Quality Task Force in 2016. The map shows areas with incentives in place for development and where development might be likely. For more information about these efforts, please visit the project pages listed below.
