Don't Make Plans Next Week

I'm taking the liberty of planning your schedule again. Consider next week pretty much booked. We have three public meetings coming up that require your attendance.

The West Plains- Spokane International Airport (WP-SIA) Transportation Study open house is on Tuesday, Jan. 18 from 4-7 p.m. at the Northern Quest Casino in Airway Heights, 100 N. Hayford Rd. That study is in the process of being wrapped up and we've developed proposed improvements and recommendations that you should know about if you live or travel through the west plains area. The meeting is in the Kalispel Ballroom, which is inside the hotel. It's open house format, so drop by at your convenience anytime during meeting hours. For more information on this study, check out its web page. And if you want to view the flyer, click on it to make it bigger.

I'm not above grovelling. If you have to sell it to your loved ones as a night at the casino and you 'accidentally' ran onto this meeting that interests you, I won't tell.



Meeting numbers 2 and 3 are for the Transportation Vision Project. That study is also in the final stages of completion and results and recommendations are available. They will be presented to the public at two open houses on Thursday, Jan. 20 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 4-7 p.m. at the Kress Gallery in Riverpark Square. Come put in your two cents about your 'vision' for transporation for the future. There's more information on that study here.
