Have you walked under the Browne Street bridge between Sprague and Pacific downtown lately? I did a couple times last summer, but then I don’t have a lot of common sense sometimes.

On his blog, Spokane City Councilman Jon Snyder writes about how a young man at this week’s Council meeting voiced concerns about what goes on under the bridge. He cited violence, gang activity and litter as a couple examples. From personal experience, I’ve also seen evidence of drug activity, sexual activity, and a lot of urinating on the walls. Councilman Snyder goes so far as to call the area ‘quite possibly one of the worst pedestrian experiences in the entire City’ and asks why this decline has been allowed to happen in this area.

Read his blog post then let me know if you have any ideas for cleaning this area up. Or just general insights into the situation.
