The Spokane City Council tonight will consider loosening the restrictions on where manufactured homes will be allowed.
Last year, the council opened up all neighborhoods except historic districts to the prefab housing. But tight restrictions on the number of manufactured homes allowed in one block prompted complaints.
Changes proposed by the city’s Plan Commission allow more than two prefab homes to be placed on the same side of the street in one block. The proposal also gets rid of the condition that two manufactured houses can’t be built side by side.
Also tonight, the council will consider an amendment to the city’s land-use plan that allows the storage and treatment of hazardous wastes in light industrial zones.
Phil Williams, the city’s director of planning and engineering services, told the council last week the change was mandated by state law.
A briefing for the council begins at 3:30 p.m. in the lower-level conference room of City Hall, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. The meeting begins at 6 p.m.
