Your Ideas to Improve Mission Ave. Wanted

Spokane Valley will host a community meeting Wednesday, March 26 to get your ideas for potential improvements to Mission Avenue between Flora and Barker. The meetings is from 6:30-8 p.m. at Greenacres Christian Church, 18010 E. Mission Avenue in Spokane Valley.

A 15-20 minute overview presentation at 6:45 p.m. will be followed by an open discussion and review of options.

The section of Mission to be discussed is a two-lane roadway that currently is mostly gravel-edged with no curbs or sidewalks. Improvements are needed to accommodate traffic flow as the community grows, and provide safe access for pedestrians and bicyclists.
