As part of a citywide effort to keep neighborhoods better informed of land use decisions, the City has begun distributing RFCs (requests for comments) to the Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council whenever there’s a zoning or parcel change relevant to our neighborhood. The last time they did this was for the construction of a broadcast tower at the back of the new Spokane Public Radio building.
The current RFC is designated the “Miller” Preliminary City Short Plat (file no. Z1500069PSP) and concerns the parcel(s) at 1728 and 1730 W Buckeye. The proposal is to split one parcel that currently has two single-family residential units on it into two lots.
You can download the property owner’s application, which describes what sort of changes have been requested, and you can download the request for comments, which contains the City’s own summary of the change as well as contact information.
Usually these RFCs are pretty anodyne (as this one appears to be), but we prefer to be proactive with information rather than have folks find out about changes after the fact.
