Housing Authority at meeting tonight

The Spokane Housing Authority's Art Noll will be at the Hillyard Neighborhood Council meeting tonight, at 6:30 p.m. at the North East Community Center (4001 N. Cook Street). Noll will be answering questions about the restoration of the Old Hillyard High School on Regal and Diamond, which is now being turned into low-income housing.

Agnes Kehoe rumors put to rest

Agnes Kehoe Place, aka the Old Hillyard High School, is being restored and turned into low-income housing by the Spokane Housing Authority. Rumors are circulating that it will be used for sex offenders housing, and the rumors are so persistent that the Housing Authority is sending a representative to Hillyard Wednesday morning to talk to the Historic Hillyard Merchants Committee about what's going on.
Just for the record: the housing authority does not allow sex offenders of any kind in its developments.
Look for live blog updates here during tomorrow's meeting - and for a more detailed story in Thursday's Voice section.

About this blog

Welcome to the Hillyard neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last six years I've worked for The Spokesman-Review.

In April, I started a neighborhood blog on South Perry Street (where I live). When it came time to expand the blog activity, Hillyard was an easy pick: There is so much going on in this neighborhood in terms of new businesses and street improvements, festivals and new construction - and there is a strong sense of neighborhood history and pride. I'm looking forward to highlighting all of that on this blog.
