West Plains Subarea Planning
The City of Spokane won a grant from the Department of Commerce to lead subarea planning efforts in the West Plains with an emphasis on capital facilities needs. The work is an on-going multi-jurisdictional project and includes partners such as the City of Airway Heights, Spokane County, Spokane International Airport, WSDOT, Fairchild Air Force Base, Spokane Tribe, Kalispel Tribe, Spokane Transit Authority, City of Cheney, City of Medical Lake, Cheney School District and others.
After providing a comprehensive review of the existing conditions and needs in the area, efforts are focused on generating alternative solutions to prepare the West Plains for continued growth and coordinating planned infrastructure projects.
