Bike/Ped Master Program Schedule Modified

To provide additional time for review, the schedule for consideration of Spokane Valley's proposed Bike & Pedestrian Master Program (BPMP) has been modified. Anticipated readings of the ordinance adopting the BPMP originally scheduled for August 9 and 23 have been cancelled.

A discussion of the BPMP has been added to the agenda for the regularly scheduled Study Session on Tuesday, August 30 at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers.

Community members are welcome to attend the August 30 Study Session. Because it is a Study Session, no public comment will be taken.

The proposed BPMP includes an inventory and assessment of current biking/walking facilities as well as recommendations for making Spokane Valley safer and more attractive for those modes of transportation.
