In 2007 the City of Spokane allocated $550,000 for the purposes of helping each of the neighborhoods develop their own neighborhood plans, resulting in approximately $21,150 for each neighborhood. In 2017 the City initiated the process for the Northwest and Audubon-Downriver neighborhoods in coordination with the Neighborhood Councils.
Following a series of meetings in 2017 and 2018, the neighborhood councils decided to pool their neighborhood planning resources, identified the need to develop a long-rang plan for the Shadle Area. The process will review land uses; identify pedestrian and multimodal improvements; examine traffic-calming measures; and explore opportunities related to existing parks and recreational features. The outcome will help improve walkability, public safety, access to services, and overall neighborhood character.
The schedule requires a completed plan to be approved by City Council by the end of 2019.
Stay tuned for events in spring and summer 2019!
