Centers, Corridors and Spokane’s Growth: Strategies for Next 20 Years

The City of Spokane in 2001 adopted a planning strategy of focusing growth toward “Centers and Corridors” following a five-year community involvement process.

These locations are characterized by the ability accommodate new housing within a short walking or rolling distance of shopping, services, public transit and other amenities.

Twenty-three Centers and Corridors were identified throughout Spokane, ranging from neighborhood centers such as Garland Avenue and Perry Street to shopping destinations such as Shadle Park and Lincoln Heights.

Policies and regulations were developed to support these locations and foster further investment in a mix of shopping, retail, services and housing.

Over the next several months, the City, as described in the following CityCable 5 video, is evaluating the Centers and Corridors Land Use Strategy, identifying policies and regulations that have been successful and strategies that may need to be updated in the City’s next Comprehensive Plan.

We would like to hear your feedback about the Centers and Corridors where you live, work and play. Please take the short Community Survey that is open through Sunday, Nov. 12.

You are also invited to in-person and virtual open houses in October and November to learn more and participate in the discussion.
