The Northeast Public Development Authority announced its board on Tuesday.
The board was appointed by Mayor David Condon and consists of Anthony Carollo, Craig Riley, Jeffery Nave, Latisha Hill and Joe Tortorelli.
The Northeast PDA was formed at the request of Hillyard, Bemiss and Whitman neighborhoods. The three neighborhoods have participated in a joint planning process that culminated with a unified neighborhood plan in 2010. The PDA was proposed in that plan.
The PDA’s focus is to develop the more than 800 acres east of Market Street, in the Hillyard, Bemiss and Whitman neighborhoods.
Carollo is president at Stewart Title of Spokane. Riley is a longtime Bemiss resident and is a groundwater and aquifer expert with the Washington state Office of Drinking Water, which is part of the Department of Health. Nave is a tax and municipal finance attorney with Foster Pepper, PLLC. Hill is a project and research manager at Avista, and Tortorelli is the vice chairman of the Spokane Area Workforce Development Council.
