Special council meeting Monday

The Spokane Valley City Council will conduct a special meeting Monday to speed up its review of the Sprague-Appleway Revitalization Plan.

The meeting will be at 5 p.m. in the second-floor conference room at City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague Ave.

Although the meeting is public, no public comments are accepted during any of the council’s ongoing deliberations on the proposed zoning code.

The code also will be the focus of Tuesday’s regular City Council meeting at 6 p.m., and council members are to decide then whether to schedule another special meeting on Jan. 26.

Tentatively, the council expects to wrap up the deliberations at its Feb. 3 meeting. If the schedule holds, the council will conduct a public hearing on March 3.

More information on the plan is available on the city’s Web site,, or by calling senior planner Scott Kuhta at 688-0049.
