As we’ve mentioned before, the City of Spokane Valley will be preparing a Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan over the next year. Here’s the latest news:
The City was awarded funds to facilitate safety analysis, route location, and implementation from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grants Program. City staff including planning, development engineering and public works will complete the remainder of the Plan. They’ll assess existing routes and facilities for safety and make a prioritized list of improvement projects.
Extensive public outreach will be a large part of the Plan, as the City wants to be sure it represents and addresses the desires and needs of all citizens. To be added to the Planning Department’s contact list for updates regarding the Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan, please contact Mary Swank at 509-720-5325 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Preliminary information will be presented at an open house to be scheduled for the first quarter of this year. Information regarding the Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan will be available on the website as it is developed, so check back often. They’ve already posted some cool maps and a work program.
