The City of Spokane Planning Services Department is working on an update to the City’s Pedestrian Plan and is offering a couple of key opportunities to get involved.
First is a new, on-line survey. The “Pedestrian Questionnaire” is designed to gather information pedestrian wants and needs in the City. The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. To participate in the survey, go to the web site here.

Additionally, the City is planning a second open house to discuss updates to the plan. The open house will be held on Wednesday, June 29, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Northeast Youth Center, 3004 E. Queen Ave.
The Pedestrian Plan Update will include ways to promote pedestrian safety and access to help ensure that Spokane is a safe, convenient, and attractive place to walk. The Pedestrian Plan will establish a pedestrian network emphasizing safe routes to school and connections to transit. The routes include streets, walkways, and trails that connect schools, libraries, parks, neighborhoods, and commercial areas throughout the City. It will identify priority street segments along these routes for targeted improvements over the next 20 years.
More information is available here. If the survey won’t transmit electronically, please print it out and mail to: Dave Steele, Planning Services Department, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd., Spokane WA 99201.
