Parking- it’s always a hot issue. Especially in certain neighborhoods. The
City of Spokane is hosting an open house this week about a proposal to eliminate certain parking
requirements in areas of Spokane zoned as Neighborhood Retail (NR).
The Spokane City Plan Commission is looking for feedback on the proposed update to neighborhood retail parking standards. Currently, the 72 small NR commercial areas within the city follow the same parking standards that other commercially zoned properties are required to follow.  Providing parking can be a costly hurdle for small neighborhood businesses, so changes were proposed to help balance the need for parking while encouraging the revitalization of small scale businesses serving the neighborhoods. Visit the project page at to learn more, then attend the open house if interested. The info is below.
WHAT:   Open House: Neighborhood Retail Parking Standards Update
WHEN:   Wednesday, March 11 (6-8 p.m.)
