First, let's start off with a hat tip to SR reporter Mike Prager, who agreed to attend last night's Shoreline Master Program open house in Spokane Valley while I attended the Mayor's State of the City speech. The city is resuming work on the plan, which regulates development along all shorelines in the city, after work stalled for several months. The state requires that the plan be updated by the end of 2013. The next step is a public hearing on the plan's goals and policies before the city planning commission Thursday at 6 p.m. You can read Mike's story about the open house here.
