Plan Identifies Transit-Supportive Economic Development Opportunities

As part of ongoing planning for the Central City Line (CCL), the City of Spokane and Spokane Transit Authority have recently developed a draft Strategic Overlay Plan to identify transit-supportive economic development opportunities and land use policy changes. This plan recommends policies and actions that will advance Spokane’s vision for community vitality along the CCL corridor.

The draft plan is available for review at: https://www.spokanetransit.com/projects-plans/central-city-line-strategic-overlay-planning and the City and STA are asking for your input on it. Please send your comments to kweinand@spokanetransit.com. Comments submitted by Thursday, June 23rd can be incorporated into the next edition of the draft plan.
