Final Ped Master Plan Open House April 26

The City of Spokane will host its final Pedestrian Master Plan open house on Thursday, April 26, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at West Central Community Center, 1603 N. Belt St. A presentation will be held at 6 p.m.

The Pedestrian Master Plan, developed under the guidance of an internal work team and citizen advisory committee, lays the foundation for implementing transportation goals and policy articulated in the Comprehensive Plan and allows the City to strategically invest existing pedestrian dollars.

The open house is a key opportunity to provide input on the draft Pedestrian Master Plan document. Phase I of the Plan Update was focused on public education and prioritizing needs for sidewalk infrastructure installation based on pedestrian generators, such as schools, parks, commercial areas, and transit stops. Spokane has more than 650 miles of missing sidewalks and a limited funding source for sidewalk infrastructure.
