The City of Spokane has a draft Pedestrian Master Plan they’d like to hear your opinion on. The plan is designed to guide investments to improve access, safety, and connectivity for
pedestrians. City staff will be taking the plan out on a “road show” this month at the Garland Street Fair and Unity in
the Community to talk about the plan and seek comments.
The Pedestrian Plan has been
under development since last fall.  It’s part of a major update of the
Transportation Chapter of the City’s Comprehensive Plan, the 20-year plan that
guides all growth for the City.

Transportation Chapter is the City’s new focus on integrating transportation
and utility infrastructure investments. With the adoption of the street
levy last fall, the City has been working to prioritize investments in our
street system based on above and below ground needs.  Mobility uses

prioritized along with needs for water distribution, wastewater, and stormwater
management, allowing the City to save money and create greater benefits for
