Valley council looks at St. John Vianney project proposal

The Spokane Valley City Council got its first look Tuesday at a proposed development agreement that has been negotiated between city staff and St. John Vianney Catholic Church. The neighbors were invited to be a part of the negotiations, but withdrew after the first meeting. The church requested that a piece of land just to the south of the church be rezoned from low density residential to medium density residential so Catholic Charities could build a low income senior housing complex on the property. The requested comprehensive plan amendment was met with strong objections from the neighborhood over concerns about increased traffic, increased crime and the size of the complex when compared to nearby homes.
