Downtown Plan

The City Council adopted the Spokane Downtown Plan by ordinance, which was signed by Mayor Nadine Woodward in August, 2021. Downtown is the city and region's center, home to the largest employment area and assets such as Riverfront Park, the financial district, major retail, historic urban core, and portions of the growing university and medical districts.

Building on the work and projects identified in previous Downtown plans adopted in 1999 and 2008, the new Downtown Plan combines the community's vision to guide development, design, and regulatory recommendations for the future with major new efforts like the Central City Line.
