Centennial Alley Street Name Change

Project Number: Z1500080STNC

Location

Centennial Alley from the west side of Elm St to the south side of Summit Parkway and the public alley in alignment with Centennial on the east side of Elm St to the south side of Summit Parkway.

Applicant

North Gorge Residential Partners LLC

Description

Kendall Yards 3rd Addition designated Centennial Alley as part of the plat. Centennial Alley is a public access which intersects the west side of Elm Street and the south side Summit Parkway. Centennial Alley is the primary vehicular access as well as the quickest emergency services route for the properties on the south side of the alley. The emergency services dispatching software utilized by the Spokane Police Department and Spokane County E911 does not recognize “alley” as a valid path of travel for emergency response and removes all references to alley from the system. We are proposing to change the name of Centennial Alley to Centennial Way to provision for emergency service response and improve geo-location accuracy. In addition to renaming Centennial Alley, we are also proposing naming the public access alley in Kendall Yards 1st Addition on the east side of Elm Street to the south side of Summit Parkway which is in alignment with Centennial Alley. The access alley would continue with the proposed Centennial Way name. The existing residences on the south side of the public alley would need to be readdressed as a result of the naming of the alley, but the readdressing should result in better response times by emergency services and improve geo-location accuracy.
