Valley Reverses SARP

Things are up in the air in Spokane Valley lately. The Spokane Valley City Council last week voted to recommend to the Planning Commission to eliminte the Sprague Appleway Revitalization Plan.

The SARP was a roadmap for the next 30 years in Spokane Valley. It included plans to switch a one-mile section of the one-way Sprague Avenue to a two-way street, create a downtown in the University City area, and construct a city hall. So will things go back to how they were six years ago, before the SARP? The Inlander looks into the situation here.
