Neighborhoods Talk Transportation

Instead of their usual weekly meeting, the Spokane City Council held one of their quarterly 'Town Hall' meetings this week where they hear from groups of neighborhoods. Each of the neighborhoods represented gets to give a presentation and bring the Council members up to date on what's been happening in their 'hood. Several of the neighborhoods that represented this week had transportation issues on their agendas- and several of them were positive, not just complaining about potholes or something.

Councilman Jon Snyder recaps the meeting on his blog.
