City of Spokane Launches Texting Service For Parking Restrictions

The City of Spokane is launching a texting service to let the public know about parking restrictions that are in place as part of snow removal efforts. This is a pilot project designed to test the interest and effectiveness of such a service.
To sign up for this service, just send a text to (509) 385-5775. Text the word “Brownes” to that number if you live in Browne’s Addition, the word “Hills” if you live along an arterial or in a residential hill route—those numbered 20 and above on our residential plow route map- and the word “Parking” if you live outside of these areas.
I just did the general 'Parking' one and am waiting to see if I get any texts today.
