Transportation hearing moves to CV High

A Senate committee's hearings to let the public suggest what to do about the state's transportation problems are proving so popular that the Spokane session is being moved to a bigger venue.

The Transportation Committee's "feedback forum" will be at the Central Valley High School theater, 6 p.m. on Oct. 2. Originally it was planned for the Greater Spokane Inc., headquarters in downtown.

Committee Co-chairman Curtis King said previous hearings have drawn big crowds. In Bellevue, they had nearly 400 people , and the Everett hearing was also standing-room. "Hundreds of people turned out, which made us realize that some of the other facilities may not be large enough to handle the crowd," King said in a press release announcing the change.

The CV theater, at 821 Sullivan Road, holds 500 and can accommodate people with disabilities.
