The City of Spokane is updating its 20-year transportation plan and they’re looking for your help. Of course, as we keep telling you, they’re doing this against
a backdrop of reduced federal transportation funding, limited state resources
and transportation maintenance expenses that exceed current local revenues.
Given these challenges, it is critical that we plan to get the most out of
every dollar.

The update will review  multimodal (pedestrian, bike,
transit, freight) transportation best practices, infrastructure needs above and
below ground within the right-of-ways, the City’s land use plan and economic
development goals, all to ensure our transportation system is ready for where
we are going. Working closely with Spokane Transit Authority, the State
Department of Transportation and other regional players, the City will develop
an integrated multimodal transportation network in a thoughtful, methodical,
and creative manner that benefits all users (I’m quoting from prepared text here by the way, in case you hadn’t figured that out).

The City is hosting an open house to review the existing
transportation conditions and gather input on the community’s transportation
visions and goals:
