Lincoln Heights District Center
December 1, 2013
City of Spokane Planning and Development is beginning a planning study of the Lincoln Heights District Center. The purpose of the study is to develop a vision for this key activity area that is currently zoned for commercial and higher-density residential use. This area is generally focused around the intersection at 29th Avenue & Regal Street but includes the larger commercial area around Lincoln Heights Shopping Center. This study seeks to identify proposals for any required changes to the Comprehensive Plan or the Land Use Code to support the vision for this area. The study will:
- Clarify the desired mix and balance of land uses
- Assess the potential for development that supports transportation related investments
- Identify opportunities for an improved public realm and place-making
Workshop #1 was held on November 20, 2013 at ESD 101, 4202 S. Regal. Discussion focused on existing conditions and asking participants to identify areas and topics important to this area. The next workshop is anticipated in spring of 2014.

City Council Adopts Laws Regulating Marijuana
September 24, 2013
On September 23rd, the Spokane City Council adopted Ordinance No. C-35037 relating to marijuana use, medical cannabis collective garden regulatory licensing and state-licensed marijuana producers, processors and retailers. The final ordinance provides permanent standards for marijuana related uses including zoning, regulatory licensing and security. The ordinance also addresses separation requirements from specified land uses. Medical cannabis collective gardens that were legally operating on September 23rd will be permitted to continue in operation as long as the operator submits an application for the regulatory license within thirty days of September 23rd. State-licensed marijuana producers, processors and retailers will still be licensed and regulated by the Washington State Liquor Control Board and will also need to comply with the City’s land use zoning regulations as established in the Ordinance C–35037.
Marijuana related uses may locate in the permitted zoning categories provided in the ordinance. An updated map is being prepared showing the zoning categories where marijuana uses may be allowed. The map will provide a general reference. As provided in the ordinance, it is the responsibility of the operator to demonstrate that a proposed location is in compliance with the ordinance.
