University District Parking Study

Why are we doing the study?

The University District bridges the Spokane River, and with six higher education institutions at its heart, has emerged as a high growth and development area on the eastern edge of downtown. Construction of the University District Gateway Bridge and Sprague Avenue Phase 2 will improve transportation connections to commercial areas along Sprague Avenue on the south side of the University District and to the Hospital District, fueling new opportunities.

The City, in partnership with the University District Development Association, is conducting a two phase study.

Phase 1

  • Inventory all public and private on and off-street parking
  • Conduct a survey
  • Analyze the information to create a user profile
  • Phase I Final Report (PDF 4.4 MB)

Phase 2

  • Conduct a feasibility analysis of a potential parking district.
