Bike & Pedestrian Plan Workshop

Mark your calendars because the City of Spokane Valley is hosting a workshop next week to help create the City's Bike & Pedestrian Master Program. The plan is aimed at making walking and bicycling easier, safer and more attractive in Spokane Valley.

City staff will be working on the plan over the next year, identifying opportunities and barriers to walking and bicycling throughout the City. This process will include an assessment for safety and use of existing routes and facilities.
