It took four hours to get it done, but members of the Spokane Transit Board yesterday voted to send STA’s Central City Line project to voters in the spring.

The project would cost $300 million and includes a sales tax increase of 0.3 percent to fund the plan that would extend hours, expand service to new areas, and fund a trolley-like route between Browne’s Addition and Spokane Community College.

There were also decisions made yesterday regarding an overhaul to the downtown STA Plaza.

Here’s the Spokesman-Review’s take on the meeting.
