Take The Pedestrian Plan Update Survey

I hear people complain a LOT about the state of sidewalks and other pedestrian issues in our area. Well, here's your chance to do something other than complain. The City of Spokane Planning Services Department is working on an update to the City's Pedestrian Plan and is offering a couple of opportunities to get involved.

The first thing you need to do is fill out this Pedestrian Questionnaire. It doesn't take long and is designed to gather information regarding walking wants and needs in the City.

Additionally, the City is planning an open house to discuss updates to the plan. The open house will be held on Wednesday, June 29, from 5-7 p.m. at the Northeast Youth Center, 3004 E. Queen Ave.

The Pedestrian Plan Update will include ways to promote pedestrian safety and access to help ensure that Spokane is a safe, convenient, and attractive place to walk.
