Council Will Consider City’s Expansion Plans Tonight

A growth management plan to accommodate some 23,000 new residents over the next 20 years is up for consideration by the Spokane City Council tonight.

Establishing an interim urban growth area is the city’s newest step in obeying the state’s growth management law.

Under the plan, the city could expand toward the Seven Mile area, Five Mile Bluff, Moran Prairie, west Spokane near the airport and the Lynnwood area.

The Lynnwood area has resisted previous annexation attempts.

Also up for adoption is a vision and values statement for the city, also required by the Growth Management Act.

It defines the expectations of the community for housing, land use, economic development, utilities and the like. xxxx WHEN AND WHERE Discussion starts at 6 p.m. in City Hall.
