Public Meeting To Discuss Closing Centennial Trail Gap

Well this is cool. And needed. When talking about local trails with the public, I often hear about gaps in the Centennial Trail. The City of Spokane is hosting an open house to present improvement options for a gap in the Centennial Trail.

The trail runs along the Spokane River beginning at Nine Mile Falls, crossing over the Washington/Idaho state line, and ending at Higgins Point on Lake Coeur d’Alene. There are a number of gaps along the trail. This meeting will address completion of a trail segment from Bridge to Boone avenues adjacent to Summit Blvd. in the West Central area.
The open house will discuss plans for:

• A non-motorized, 12-ft. wide trail.
• Retaining walls.
• Fencing.
• Benches.
• A pavilion.

The open house is Thursday, Oct. 11, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at West Central Community Center, 1603 N. Belt St.
