A reminder that the City of Spokane Valley is hosting a public meeting tonight, from 5-7 P.M. in the City Hall Council Chambers to gather public input on the idea of spending $823,000 in Federal Recovery Act grant funds on projects that result in energy savings and long-term sustainability.
One of the projects they are interested in developing with that money is a Bike Master Plan (BMP). A goal of the Comprehensive Plan is the adoption of a BMP that will enable the City to leverage funds for the construction of alternative transportation facilities.
Other ideas being considered for the grant funds are:
– Exchanging traditional traffic lights with LED lights
– Conducting energy audits on City-owned facilities
– Preparing a long-term energy plan for the City
– Sprague Avenue traffic signal coordination system from University to Sullivan
