Post Falls Still Looking For Downtown

Next up on Post Falls' quest to create a downtown: Spokane Street. The north-south corridor from Interstate 90 south to the Spokane River bridge will receive a makeover featuring raised landscaped medians, a pedestrian/bike trail on the west side, gateway monuments at both ends, decorative lighting and on-street parallel parking. The improvements will start late this summer with traffic signals at Fourth and Spokane next to City Hall. The rest of the $2.2 million project funded by the Post Falls Urban Renewal Agency will be done starting next spring. "We want minimal impact to traffic and don't want to tear up Spokane Street in two different construction years," said Matt Gillis, project engineer for Welch Comer Engineers. "It's like ripping off a Band-Aid quickly instead of slowly." The project is the latest aimed at creating a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly city center, Gillis said/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Where would you say downtown Post Falls is?
