City Ped Plan Open House Next Wednesday

The City of Spokane is updating the city-wide Pedestrian Plan and asking for your input at an open house next week.

Phase I of the Pedestrian Plan Update will focus on public education and sidewalk infrastructure installation. There are more than 650 miles of missing sidewalks in the City of Spokane and a limited funding for sidewalk improvements. This is the first phase in completing a citywide pedestrian network and will identify priorities based on generators, such as schools, parks, commercial areas, and STA bus stops

An open house on Wednesday, June 29, will gather input on this topic. The open house is 5-7 p.m. at the Northeast Youth Center, 3004 E. Queen Ave.
