I'm expecting a bit a crowd to be at the Spokane Valley City Council meeting tonight for the public hearing on the St. John Vianney zone change request. The church asked that a piece of property to the south of the church be rezoned so Catholic Charities could build a low income senior housing complex on it. The plan has drawn the ire of many neighbors. City staff has negotiated a development agreement that would limit what can be done with the property. Tonight's hearing is on the agreement and the zone change request.
The other hot topic of the evening will be a motion on whether or not to put the one-way Sprague issue on the November ballot. There will be public comment taken before the vote, so this is your chance to put in your two cents.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague. If you can't make it, though, you can always take advantage of the city's new live web streaming of the council meetings. Just go to the city's web site at www.spokanevalley.org and click on the SVTV link. You can also watch a video of the meeting later at your leisure.
