There are 29 neighborhood councils across the city of Spokane working to connect neighbors, involve residents in local government, and influence positive change.

Recently, Emerson Garfield and North Hill, two neighborhoods in central Spokane, came together to celebrate the unveiling of their new gateway sign. Both neighborhoods worked alongside artists, Mallory Battista and Lisa Soranaka, the Spokane Arts Commission, the Business Garland District and the North Monroe Business District to create the sign titled “Sun Shine Through.” You can find the sign at the corner of North Monroe Street and West Cora Avenue.

Another way to get your art fill is via the Asphalt Art program. This partnership between the Office of Neighborhood Services and Spokane Arts allows neighborhood councils to apply for a street mural, which will help to slow traffic and beautify the neighborhood. Applications are open for neighborhood councils.

If you’re looking for a way to build your leadership skills or develop your neighborhood council, register for the first Spokane Neighborhood Summit on Saturday, Nov. 4! The Summit is a FREE half-day conference for Spokane neighborhood council members or aspiring members.

You definitely do not want to miss out on the Spokane Works tours being hosted the day before the Spokane Neighborhood Summit, on Friday, Nov. 3. Tours will feature the Upriver Dam and the Riverside Park Water Reclamation Facility. Save your spot today!
