The Neighborhood Alliance aims to empower and connect neighborhoods in the Inland Northwest.
It consists of neighborhood communities and individuals who are committed to improving uses of land, natural resources and energy so nature, environment and quality of life is sustained or improved instead of being depleted or degraded.
The group was founded in 1998 by Bonnie Mager, now a Spokane County commissioner.
In 2000, the alliance took on the neighborhood planning under the Comprehensive Plan, including developing a tool box for neighborhood planning.
Since then, the alliance has been involved in many land-use issues.
