Background

On July 9, 2018, the Spokane City Council adopted Resolution 2018-0061. The Resolution amended the City's Comprehensive Plan Amendment Annual Work Program to include a proposed emergency amendment that would remove the "proposed arterial designation" from Crestline Street between 37th Avenue and the intersection of Southeast Blvd and 31st. This designation is on Map TR12, Chapter 4, in the City's Comprehensive Plan. The city council resolution 2018-0061 states that this situation necessitates an emergency comprehensive plan amendment due to a community need to ensure adequate, appropriate, and available public facilities.

In connection with the proposed amendment, the City Council asked for a traffic analysis to help inform the City Council as well as all interested parties while the proposed amendment is under consideration. The City received a traffic analysis conducted by DKS Engineering in mid-February 2019. The section of the traffic study related to Crestline is on page 18.
