The City of Spokane will host an open house on Wednesday, Sept. 28, to gather input on Phase I of its Pedestrian Plan Update. The open house is 5-7 p.m. at NEWESD 101, 4202 S. Regal St., Spokane, WA 99223.
It is a key opportunity to provide input on how the City should increase pedestrian safety and mobility, support a multimodal transportation system, and how to best use resources to implement pedestrian initiatives.
Phase I of the Pedestrian Plan Update will focus on public education and sidewalk infrastructure installation. There are more than 650 miles of missing sidewalks in the City of Spokane and a limited funding source for sidewalk infrastructure. This is the first phase in completing a citywide pedestrian network and will identify priorities based on generators, such as schools, parks, commercial areas, and STA bus stops.
