City of Spokane Planning Meetings Next Week

What should the future of Spokane’s transportation and utility infrastructure look like? That’s the question the City of Spokane committed to answering this year. They're doing the “Link Spokane” planning process to create a 20-year vision for transportation and utility needs within the City, and a number of workshops are planned for next week to get you involved in the process.

 These meetings will focus on transportation needs, asking people to help define the types of streets that meet their needs for driving, biking, walking, accessing transit, and more. Here are the opportunities:

·         Bicycle Transportation System Planning Workshop--Monday, Feb. 3, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Council Briefing Room, lower level of Spokane City Hall, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd.
