What Are The Transportation Needs of the West Plains Area?

Live, drive or commute in the West Plains area? Then you'll want to voice your opinion at a workshop to
define future transportation needs for the West Plains. The City of Spokane will host the workshop Thursday, March 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the gym at Sunset Elementary School, 12824 12th Ave. in Airway Heights.


The meeting will explore bike, pedestrian, and vehicular transportation needs. It will begin with a presentation on the scope of the project and existing conditions in the area, followed by interactive activities intended to solicit input on transportation needs and desires on the West Plains.
The workshop is part of a larger effort to identify and plan for the infrastructure needed to support growth and development on the West Plains. The City of Spokane is leading a multi-agency effort to explore these issues, and information will be used by the City and the many partners in the project to include in their Comprehensive Plans and other planning documents.

Besides the City, the project’s partners include Spokane County, the Spokane International Airport, the City of Airway Heights, WSDOT, Fairchild Air Force Base, the Spokane Tribe, the Kalispel Tribe, Spokane Transit Authority, the City of Cheney, the City of Medical Lake, Cheney School District and others.
