Down To Earth

This Land is Your Land

In the time it would take you to whistle that Woody Guthrie classic you could effectively inform the Spokane City Council that you want better land use a priority. In an effort to better understand their constituents, the City Council has created a survey to determine their priorities for 2009. This is your chance to tell them what you want – FILL IT OUT NOW Our friends at Futurewise have come up with a few helpful suggestion for the last comment box: • Implement the comprehensive plan • Take decisive action to address greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change • Take neighborhood planning seriously • Adopt strong protections for the Spokane River in the Shoreline Master Program • Stop expanding the Urban Growth Area until underdeveloped areas reach appropriate target densities • Make provisions for complete streets with multi modal transportation options for people of all ages and abilities in our neighborhoods. • Protect the last remaining farmland in our city • We want transit oriented walkable, bikeable neighborhoods!
