Whitworth Water District No. 2 is building a $4.3 million administrative building north of Spokane on U.S. Highway 2 near the fire station in Mead, according to the district.
The 15,700-square-foot building at 17401 N. Newport Highway will consist of 6,100 square feet of office space and 9,800 square feet of shop and vehicle storage.
According to its website, the water district has operated out of the same building for nearly 50 years, during which time it’s expanded from serving 3,000 households to serving more than 10,000 households.
The water district was established in 1939 and operates as a public municipality under state law. It is is governed by a five-member elected board of commissioners.
Bernardo|Wills Architects, of Spokane, is designing the project, which is expected to be complete in 2019.
