Sorry I haven't been too active on the blog this week. My fingers can only type so fast and sometimes there just isn't enough time in the day. But we've spent our time wisely, putting together another bunch of great stories for Thursday's Valley Voice.
I'll have an update on last night's Spokane Valley City Council discussion on the proposed Bike and Pedestrian Master Program. Council members spent some time editing the document, but there will be more discussion to come. Reporter Lisa Leinberger checked in with the Rockin B Ranch near Stateline. The facility, which offers cowboy supper shows and Patrick McManus shows, will be closing its doors for good in October. If you have never had a chance to go out there for some family friendly entertainment, now is the time. Their food is pretty good, too.
The commissioners in Spokane County Fire District 8 recently voted to place a maintenance and operations levy on the November ballot. It will be their first ever M&O levy. We will also have some information on the Labor Day celebration in Liberty Lake, which includes a celebration of the city's 10th anniversary.
This is just a reminder that there will be a public hearing on the Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan before the City of Spokane Valley Planning Commission at 6 p.m. Thursday. Part of the plan includes a map of suggested future bike lanes and trails. This is your last chance to make suggestions on what you think the City should do to make the city better for cyclists and pedestrians. The meeting is in City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague.
If you regularly walk or pedal around Spokane Valley, you might want to check out Thursday night's City of Spokane Valley Planning Commission meeting. On the agenda is the city's draft bike and pedestrian master plan. The plan includes a map and list of recommended improvements, including paths and bike lanes. The plan has gotten a fair amount of attention from local bicycling groups, so there may be a bit of a crowd at the meeting. After the Planning Commission makes a recomendation on whether to accept or reject the plan it will go before the City Council for a final decision. Thursday's meeting begins at 6 p.m. in City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague.
