Mission trailhead closed today for road work

Access to the trailhead where Mission Avenue dead ends at the Centennial Trail in Greenacres will be temporarily shut down today. As part of the Indiana Avenue extension project, crews are grinding down the paved portion of Mission and resurfacing it. Today crews will grade the unpaved portion of Mission and then spread the gravel-sized pieces of asphalt on the surface. It's a nice bit of recycling that will improve the dirt portion of Mission without too much efffort. As anyone who has driven that stretch lately can tell you, it was sorely in need of a good grading at the very least. And as an added bonus, the work is expected to widen the turn around where the street ends at the trail.

Quiet zones and trailheads on today’s agenda

There are a few interesting items on the Spokane Valley City Council agenda for tonight, but since it is a study session there won't be a general public comment period. There are action items: the first reading of several ordinances having to do with comprehensive plan amendments. Public comment will be taken on those items. Most are fairly standard changes, but one would eliminate the Sprague/Appleway Revitalization Plan. (The most controversial amendment, the St. John Vianney Church rezone request, has been removed for negotiations and will not be discussed tonight.)

Other items that have attracted public interest are railroad quiet zones on the Union Pacific line at Park Road and Vista Road and the Mission Avenue trailhead in Greenacres. Both will be discussed tonight, so head on down to City Hall at 6 p.m. tonight to hear about where the council wants to go with both those proposals.
