Spokane Valley City Council will make their final decision on approving the Bike and Pedestrian Master Program (BPMP) at their meeting next week.
At the first reading of the BPMP, Council members went through the plan section by section and removed words such as “ensure” and replaced them with “encourage.” Even so, the council is divided on the topic, with three voting to move the BPMP to the second reading (next week’s action), two voting against it and one council member absent.
Valley staff says it’s important to get the Program approved and into the Comprehensive Plan in order to receive future grant money toward projects that include bike lanes and facilities. More information on the Bike and Pedestrian Master Program can be found here.
If you would like to attend next week’s Council Meeting, it’s Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 6 p.m. The Council will be taking public comment on the BPMP.
