Council Considering Adopting Bike & Ped Master Program

Good news for Spokane Valley's Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Program (BPMP). Following a public hearing before the Planning Commission last week, Commissioners unanimously recommended that the Valley City Council adopt the program.

The City Council will review the Planning Commission recommendations during a presentation by staff at the July 19 Study Session at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers.

The first reading of the ordinance adopting the BPMP is scheduled for August 9 at 6p.m., with the second reading at the August 23 Council meeting at 6:00pm. Both meetings will be held in Council Chambers and public comment on the program is encouraged.

The proposed BPMP can be read online here.
