Spokane Valley

Coming Thursday

My goodness there was a lot of people at the Spokane Valley City Council meeting last night. The council chambers were packed and the public comment period lasted for well over an hour. Most people were there to complain about a proposed comprehensive plan amendment to rezone property next to St. John Vianney Catholic Church to allow Catholic Charities to build a low income senior housing complex. It has become a highly emotional and controversial issue. My story on the council's discussion and decision will be in Thursday's Valley Voice.

Also in the Valley Voice will be an update on the efforts of the Spokane Valley Fire Department to evict a construction company from land the department owns at Barker and Euclid. The company has been using the site for storage for years and they were supposed to be gone by now.

I'll also have a report on the Mayor's first State of the City speech. There will be four in all and the second one will be Thursday night at 7 p.m. at CenterPlace, 2426 N. Discovery Place. So if you missed the first one, there are plenty of other chances to get in on the discussion.
