The City of Spokane is interested in developing a Local Revitalization Area in the University District and wants your input on the proposal.
Creation of a Local Revitalization Area would provide funding for public improvement projects within the District through a new version of tax-increment financing approved by the state Legislature in 2009. The funding could provide a boost toward the construction of a railroad overpass for pedestrians and bicyclists in the District, along with other potential projects.
A meeting is scheduled for tomorrow night (Tuesday) to learn about the University District Local Revitalization Area. The City is seeking input on the boundaries of the area, as well as the projects that could be constructed using this funding.
The meeting is at the Nursing Center, Auditorium 105, on the Riverpoint Campus, 103 Spokane Falls Blvd.
