What should the future of Spokane’s transportation and utility infrastructure look like? That’s what the City of Spokane is trying to figure out with their “Link Spokane” planning process to create a 20-year vision for transportation and utility needs within the City.
Decisions must be made about long-term policies that address maintenance needs, environmental regulations, and strategies to accommodate growth and economic development. What;s new about this process is integrating plans for transportation and utilities, which has not been done in the past.
This week’s Inlander includes a booklet that explains the work and has details on upcoming workshops. The Down to Earth Northwest blog has more information on this planning initiative.
