Bike and Pedestrian plan a moving target

I've heard there is interest in when the Spokane Valley City Council will discuss the proposed Bike and Pedestrian Master Program again. They council decided last week that they needed more time to discuss it before it comes to a first reading. The problem is that the scheduled date for that second look has been moving around more than a leaf on a windy day.

The first reading was originally scheduled for August 9. Then the second study session the council requested was briefly scheduled for Oct. 4. Now it seems it is on the agenda for the August 30 council meeting. That meeting is a study session and no public comment will be taken. Of course, that date could always change. I'll keep an eye on the advance agenda in case it moves again.
