Shoreline plan process begins

By From Staff Reports

Spokane Valley will take a first public step next Thursday toward writing its own shoreline regulations.

Currently, the city uses a Spokane County “shoreline master program” that was adopted on an interim basis after the city was incorporated in 2003.

City planners will discuss their plans to update the shoreline program at an open house meeting from 5:30 to 7 p.m. next Thursday at City Hall, 11707 E. Sprague Ave.

Planners will present an inventory of city shorelines – including the Spokane River, Shelley Lake and the Central Pre-Mix and Flora Road gravel pits – and their preliminary findings.

Shoreline plans govern land use within 200 feet of substantial bodies of water, as defined by state law.

The current plan is available at City Hall or on the city’s Web site:
