Have an idea of what the community spaces along the North Spokane Corridor should look like? A series of “charrettes” hosted by the Washington State Department of Transportation begin in late February where citizens can contribute ideas on public places and amenities along the NSC route and adjacent Children of the Sun Trail.
A charrette is a workshop that helps identify issues and potential solutions for projects with community-wide significance. The charrette process welcomes citizens’ concepts for preserving, enhancing and creating public spaces to promote health, happiness and well-being.

Plan to attend the charrette for your neighborhood, (based city of Spokane Neighborhood boundaries). The Children of the Sun charrette is open to anyone interested in the trail. These are four-hour workshops with a 30-minute lunch break. Plan on bringing a brown-bag lunch. Children are welcome to participate. The charrettes are free to attend.
Neighborhood charrettes for the Chief Garry and East Central neighborhoods will be coming up later in 2018.
Can’t attend any of the charettes?
Ideas are always welcome at the NSC Placemaking Story Map website as well.
