Council votes to look into ‘complete streets’

The Spokesman-Review

Bike lanes, improved sidewalks and other transportation amenities will get a renewed focus in the city of Spokane.

The Spokane City Council agreed Monday to direct city workers to “identify the gaps” and locate “opportunities to supplement and fund” complete street plans.

Although it’s nonbinding, the plan triggered spirited debate, with more than a dozen people testifying and council members spending more than an hour defending their various positions.

Councilman Jon Snyder, who introduced the measure, said it gets the city started on rules that could make streets more accommodating for pedestrians and bicyclists. Council members Bob Apple and Nancy McLaughlin voted against the resolution, arguing they’re concerned about the cost.
